Through the generous funding of donors, the Library and Archives has been digitizing historic newspapers and newsletters from important Aerospace companies, such as Convair/General Dynamics. These newspapers are of vital importance, as they are often the only record of those who worked at the companies. These newspapers were printed specifically for company employees, and are replete with mentions of their day to day activities. In addition to general company news, sports team accomplishments, births, promotions, and other such milestones are mentioned.
All of the text of these items can be searched so that names, events and places can easily be found. Directions on searching can be found here, and the digitized items can be accessed at: https://archive.org/details/sandiegoairspacemuseum.
