Other than the charts of Chic's from 1960, the collections currently also includes a set of Chicago Midway charts from 1950 from Alan Courtney, and a set from Kunming China from the 1940's, also from Chic and John.
If anyone has any others they want to add to the collection just send the scans to me - tgibson at sunstroke dot sdsu dot edu
The 1940's Kunming chart has special meaning for me, my father was flying from there in 1945.
That one is no longer there to find, with posr-war development. I have been to see the WW2 strip at Lijiang, it stayed in use for most of the 20th century, and in 2003 the dirt runway was still being used by a local driving school.
I have just purchased a 1958/59 Jeppesen charts book, including all airport approach charts east of the Mississippi river (including Canada). If anyone is interested in seeing specific scans from the book, just let me know. I have uploaded Miami and Idlewild charts from the book into the US East album (above).
It also has a smattering of airport diagrams in other parts of the US and Canada.
