Summary Creator Potts, David E. Title David E. Potts Aviation at Norwich University Collection Dates 1976-1989 Extent 4 Files About the Collection
The collection centers around the 1978 slide presentation and, eventually, the video production in 1989 of “Wings Over Norwich: a Pictorial Chronology of Aviation on The Hill,” which documents the evolution of aviation education at Norwich and the contributions her alumni have made to the development of aviation in the United States. Captain Potts wanted to demonstrate that although Air Force ROTC had only started at Norwich in 1971, Norwich alumni were involved in aviation from its earliest beginnings. Included are both the slide script and three cases of slides that accompanied Potts’ 1978 presentation. There is also a copy of the May 1976 Norwich Record containing an article by Potts, “From Balloons to Ballistic Missiles: the Saga of Aviation at Norwich.”
