This collection contains papers relating to A.P. Keith. The papers include documents about a patent Keith received in 1870
for a flying machine.
Alexander P. Keith hailed from Eaton, Massachusetts, coming to California for the gold mines and then making his big strike
in Nevada in 1859-60. He used his newfound fortune to continue his vision of his airplane invention. His invention deviated
from the then accepted flapping wing devices that were of the time.
