“G” is for James Gillespie



This is an advertisement for a pocket Airway Manual that pilots used to keep up to date on rules and restrictions.

The James Gillespie Papers are housed in over 50 boxes of information pertaining to the Gillespie Airfield of the 1940s and 1950s, covering the business aspects of the airfield as well as James Gillespie’s career and personal interest in aviation. The papers reveal a wide range of topics such as aircraft parts, finances, flight records, advertisements, maps, personal artifacts, air shows, photographs, and aviation in the Middle Tennessee area. These papers relate to both the business of the airfield and Gillespie’s personal interest and career in aviation. This collection can be useful for research in aeronautics, aviation, regional history, and other related fields.
