The Daniel Egger papers include correspondence, printed matter, and photographs related to Daniel Egger’s career in the aerospace industry.
Daniel Egger was a Swiss-born engineer who worked for John Knudsen "Jack" Northrop at Lockheed on the Vega, at Avion and, when Avion was bought by United Aircraft & Transport Corporation (UATC), at Northrop Aircraft Corporation in Burbank, California. Due to circumstances beyond his control and not of his fault, he and his family were deported back to Switzerland in 1930. He maintained a correspondence with Jack Northrop throughout and, with Northrop's help, came back to the United States in 1938/39, eventually working for the Vega Airplane Company, Garret AiResearch and Northrop Aircraft Inc.
