Scope and Content Note

Arranged alphabetically by format or subject, the series consists of annual reports, clippings, correspondence, employee handbooks and newsletters, oral histories, photographs, and ephemera that document significant events in Anderson’s career and the Lockheed Corporation.
The Correspondence subseries is arranged chronologically, with congratulatory correspondence related to Anderson’s promotions organized separately. The chronological correspondence was originally labeled “personal” as it is often related to Anderson’s fundraising work, personal finances, or friendly exchanges between past and present colleagues, however it also contains Lockheed correspondence and memoranda, most of which was distributed departmentally or company-wide.
The Photographs subseries is arranged alphabetically by subject and contains prints of early Lockheed aircraft, employees, and customers; many have been previously published.
Employee newsletters, Lockheed Star and Lockheed-Vega Star, dated during World War II are located in the series, as are oral histories of C. Hadden, V. Christan, and Willis Hawkins on VHS by Roy Blay, and documentation of Cyril Chappellet’s stock ownership.
