    I've recently become interested in historical CN as developed with the dawn and progress of aviation.  I very much hope to see more of this discussed on NavList.
    I  hope Weems' papers could be released ,more or less, by topic .   However, some material falls under several topics so a category description can be difficult to define.  Possible topics:Earliest aids up to 1920?,   air mail route navigation aids over water, over land; onboard instrumentation ; development of various mathematical techniques/tables; etc.  Ideally the released material would have cross references to letters and govenment documents, or other files/topics,  but this is probably hoping for too much.   Historians spend their lives sorting through this type of material.
    Thank you for asking for NavList input.  Much appreciated!

    In early April, the National Air and Space Museum will be launching its website for the new Time and Navigation exhibit. It will feature the ability to host a considerable amount of research material. One of the obvious sources of material are the 200 or so linear feet of P.V.H. Weems' papers. We have to start somewhere, so what types of things would Navlist folks like to see first?
