This question is directed to Joseph R. Boeke but other people may have
a similar query regarding the:

>The Atlantic Coast Chapter of the League of WWI Aero Historians will be
>meeting on Saturday, November 11, 1995 from 9:00am-3:00pm

I have investigated the possibility of obtaining material from the NASM
archives but it all appears to be fairly difficult if you do not live in the
U.S.A. Besides the potential cost, the main problem seems to be finding out
just what material they might have on your topic of interest.

Perhaps Mr Silbermann's presentation might shed some light on this matter.

>Speaker: Paul Silbermann, Archives, NASM
>Topic: "Everything You Wanted To Know And How To Locate It" a comprehensive
>examination of the NASM Archive with special reference to the materials
>pertaining to WWI aviation.

I wonder if is possible to get Mr Silbermann's permission to publish a copy
of his presentation on this list for the benefit of those who cannot attend?
