Scope and Content Note

The Eugene Edward Wilson Papers, comprising 30.5 linear feet of documentation, span the period from 1854 to 1973. The papers encompass Wilson's careers as an officer in the U.S. Navy, an aircraft manufacturing executive, and author, as well as the genealogy of Wilson's ancestors in both the Wilson and Pomeroy families.

The collection is composed primarily of textual documents of varying formats, including incoming and outgoing letters, press clippings, books, draft writings, newsletters, and reports. Other material types include photographs, audio-visual recordings, and museum objects. Many of the above listed document types can also be found within a collection of Wilson's personal scrapbooks.

The Wilson Papers are organized into twelve series by document type or office of origin. Nine series consist primarily of textual documents. BIOGRAPHICAL FILES, featuring documents harvested from throughout the collection, offer an introduction to both Wilson and the collection. UNITED STATES NAVY FILES consists primarily of the ship's newsletter of the U.S.S. Arkansas and press clippings, both of which focus on the closing days of World War I. Wilson's second career as an aircraft executive is touched upon in UNITED AIRCRAFT AND SUBSIDIARIES FILES, which covers Wilson's involvement with Chance Vought Aeronautics and Pratt & Whitney, as well as the parent corporation. Consisting of corporate records and press clippings, these files also focus on the history of the three companies. WRITINGS AND PUBLICATIONS (EUGENE WILSON), consisting of draft and published copies of books, articles, essays, short stories, poems, book reviews, and speeches, details Wilson's career as a writer and public speaker. The series also represents the breadth of Wilson' interests and political views. Works by other authors, especially Wilson's wife Genevieve, and daughter Katherine, can be found in WRITINGS AND PUBLICATIONS (OTHERS). The series also includes a sub-series of general press clippings, as well as a thermodynamics textbook by Wilson's mentor, Charles Edward Lucke, and a Bible. CORRESPONDENCE consists of incoming and outgoing letters and telegrams between Wilson and various personal, political, and business correspondents. In addition to general correspondence, which covers multiple topics (and includes such notable correspondents as Dwight D. Eisenhower, Lyndon B. Johnson, John F. Kennedy, Charles Lindbergh, Richard M. Nixon, Edward "Eddie" Rickenbacker, and Igor Sikorsky), the series also includes a considerable amount of material focusing specifically on nature conservation and the disposition of Wilson's papers (undertaken with Naval Academy Librarian Vernon D. Tate). SUBJECT FILES pertains to a wide array of Wilson's interests, including national aviation policy, the B-36 bomber, and The Daniel Guggenheim Fund for the Promotion of Aeronautics. G.C. WESTERVELT FILES, consisting solely of the papers of Captain George Conrad Westervelt, focuses on the transatlantic flights of the U.S. Navy's Curtiss flying boats. SCRAPBOOKS serves as an amalgam, consisting of biographical material, general correspondence, subject file materials, and photographs.

Three series consist primarily of non-textual documents. PHOTOGRAPHS consists of portraits of Wilson and several of his contemporaries, stills of naval vessels, and images of the facilities at The Daniel Guggenheim Airship Institute. Dictations and films of some of Wilson's works, as well as musical numbers, television interviews, and footage of early helicopters and airship operations constitute the bulk of AUDIO-VISUAL MATERIALS. Artifacts and museum objects, including fly fishing lures, a bronze relief, a tapestry, and a paperweight are located in REALIA.

Research interests served by the Eugene Wilson Papers include the personal and family history of Eugene Wilson, examples of literature of the sea, the development of naval aviation and seaplanes, the U.S. Navy's first transatlantic flights, the operations of The Daniel Guggenheim Fund for the Promotion of Aeronautics, the U.S. Navy's reactions to the B-36 bomber and strategic bombing, the development of national aviation policy, the development of space exploration and its governance, and Wilson's personal philosophy of Pax Aeronautica (peace through air power).
