Lakehurst, New Jersey. 1953-1981. A group of material related to the Naval Air Station Lakehurst including annuals, on-base newspapers, calendars, and guide books. Quartos annuals with dark navy boards and gilt covers for the years 1953, 1957, and 1960. These are accompanied by three consecutive issues of the base newspaper (The Airship) from 1957, two wrappered NAS Lakehurst guide books for 1966 and 1971, five comb-bound calendars of American Airship for 1976 and 1978-1981, and a second edition of Airship Operation World War II: 7 December 1941 to September 1945. Overall near fine with some light rubbing and wear. The material appears to have been collected by Stewart J. Hyland, a civilian worker on the base, who appears in each of three annuals; his ownership name appears in one as well. Also present are some scattered newspaper clippings related to Lakehurst and photocopies of articles about airships. Though Lakehurst is best known as the site of the infamous Hindenburg disaster, it has been in continuous used since its construction in 1916 and remains the largest naval aviation center in the Northeast. A detailed list is available upon request. . (Inventory #: 407726)
