    This collection consists of 38 cases of glass slides taken by Edgar Mix. The slides reflect aeronautical themes, both lighter- and heavier-than-air subjects from the early 1900s. Subjects photographed by Mix include the Grand Semaine d'Aviation de la Champagne (Reims, France), Camp d'Auvours and various aeronautical events taking place in the vicinity of Paris during 1910 and 1911. Also included are images of Mix himself and what appear to be images of his family.
