    Abstract: Letters, telegrams, legal agreements, photographs, posters. Most of the collection pertains to Moore's airplane used by J. Herman Banning (pilot) and Thomas C. Allen (mechanic), the first African-Americans to fly from Los Angeles to New York (1932). There is an agreement in which Moore and his associate give the use of the plane to Banning for one year. Much of the materials deal with Moore's attempts to reclaim the plane after Banning's 1933 death. Photographs are of Banning and Allen as well as Marie Daughter, another pilot. There are also posters announcing the public appearances of Banning and Allen.
