EARLY BIRDS OF AVIATION
CHIRP
 
  The partial collection of Chirps from my father-in-law's collection have proven to be a treasure house of stories and photos. By using them, I have been able to build pages on the site for some 280 of the original members. However, I have nearly exhausted the materials from the Chirps I had available and hope to gain access to more of the missing issues in order to complete the project.
     To that end, I am listing the issues I have used to date, (9-21-03), and ask that if you have any other issues you could loan to me, please let me know. In addition, if you know where I might obtain the loan of Chirps from archived copies, I would appreciate knowing about that.
