The 1910 Los Angeles International Aviation Meet Research Collection includes journal articles, news clippings, and photographs relating to the first international aviation meet in the United States. Some of the journal articles were written at the time of the Aviation Meet while others were authored at a later date and help to shed light upon the importance of the event both on aeronautical history and for the region. The news clippings cover the period shortly before the event as well as the ten day period of the event. Many of the photographs are one of a kind and detail many of the well known aviators of the period as well as heavier-than-air and lighter-than-air ships which took part in the meet.
