L'Aerophile Collection Overview

Jean-François Pilâtre de Rozier, French balloonist, blowing hydrogen gas into a flame, ca. early 1800s

In January 1893 the French journalist and balloonist Georges Besancon (1866-1934), in collaboration with the Union Aerophile de France, began publishing a monthly illustrated revue, L'Aerophile (published 1893-1947). Quickly, L'Aerophile became one of the premier journals of the early history of aviation. The first years were devoted to balloonists and the importance of meteorology on ballooning (for example, atmospheric effects on equipment, instruments, and humans). In later years, as artificial wings, gliders, man- and engine-powered planes were developed, the magazine brought their stories to the public.

The fifteen thousand or so items contained in the 150 boxes of the Library of Congress collection include blueprints and manufactures' information of early French and foreign aircraft and dirigibles, reports of accidents involving flyers and balloonists, photographs of aircraft, engines, and various aircraft equipment, aerial photographs from World War I, and a series of French cartoons from the period 1909 - 1912 related to aviation. The collection also contains hundreds of photographs of early aviators and designers, including pictures of Charles Lindbergh and his wife Anne Morrow being feted in Paris during their European trip of 1933.  A large number of L'Aerophile images appeared in the National Air and Space Museum's major exhibition in 2003 celebrating the centennial of the Wright brothers' first flight, titled the Wright Brothers' & the Invention of the Aerial Age.

Listed below is a brief description of the contents for boxes 1 - 75 (please note that there are gaps in the numbering scheme, content list for boxes 75 - 150). Compiled by Frank Garmon, Jr. Fellow, Summer 2009. Also see the Finding Aid in the LC Finding Aids database.
