              CAVM Photograph Collection
              Collection · Reproduced 1960-2001 (originally created ca. 1908-1989)

              The CAVM Photograph Collection was gathered by the National Aviation Museum over time in order to preserve a visual record of aviation in Canada. The Museum used these photographs in exhibits, for historical reference, for reference in constructing models, and for restoration projects. Some original photographs (prints or negatives) were added to the Museum’s permanent collection, but selections were also made from photograph albums, scrapbooks, and prints, that were then copied and returned. Contributors may have been the original photographers, sharing or donating their own work, or aviation enthusiasts or historians that had copied photographs from other collections. Many small groups of photographs were donated by individuals and families with connections to aviation. The Museum created preservation copy negatives of the selected photographs, giving each copy negative a sequential number. The Collection is arranged in three series: CAVM-1 Negatives, CAVM-2 Prints, and CAVM-3 Card catalogue. The card catalogue was created to facilitate access to the Collection. Each card has information on the photograph with a small print glued to the card as a visual reference. The catalogue has five Photographic Print (PP) sub-series: PP01 General Aircraft by Manufacturer; PP02 National Aviation Museum Collection (historical photographs of Museum aircraft or conservation photographs taken by Museum staff); PP03 People, Organizations, Events, Gliders/Blimps, Airports/Air Fields; PP04 Hawker Siddeley Canada; and PP05 Miscellaneous (Museum displays, events, public relations, staff, site, models and engines).

              Fred Shortt Fonds
              CA ON00420 SHO · Fonds · 1923-1996, predominant 1955-1992

              Fonds includes: trade literature; correspondence; handwritten and typed notes; speeches; reprints clippings, and drafts of articles, photographs, technical drawings and other records. The files seem to be mostly personal subject files on aircraft, aviation companies, and other related topics, crossing all eras of aviation. Correspondence could be written by or addressed to Shortt. It could have also been gathered or copied by Shortt, but originally written or addressed to a third-party. The photographs seem to be copies from the Museum’s photograph collection. The files have no particular order, but files on similar topics are grouped together. For example, all Canadair files are grouped together.
