Donate now for an exclusive opportunity to help us discover the hidden history in the Hughes Aviation documents

on July 14, 2018 from 10:00-2:00 at EASM

DONATE NOW and join us for a “Behind the Scenes” tour of collections on July 14 from 10-2. In the archives at Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum (EASM), we have the equivalent of 1.5 million pieces of paper, all historical documents related to the story of Howard Hughes and his aviation projects. This archive of papers, drawings, manuals, and reports tell the story of the building of the Spruce Goose as well as documenting other Hughes accomplishments. A recently discovered a copy of Howard Hughes’ logbook provides the details of his record-breaking Round the World Flight in July of 1938. This is a reminder of the significance of the items we have in our collection, and our inspiration to launch HARP--the Hughes Aviation Research Project (HARP). Through this project, we will begin to make this incredible collection available to the world through onsite displays, research opportunities and the digitization of the collection. In the first phase of the project, we will explore the content of the collection, develop internship programs with local colleges, and build creative writing curriculum that will be available to inspire budding authors of all ages.
