Historical Context

Grumman – For over sixty years the name Grumman had been synonymous with Naval aviation. This unique company had supplied aircraft which had consistently broken new ground both in design and performance. The Cradle of Aviation’s Grumman archives trace the development of a company that remained independent and unique for most of its history, from its founding in 1929 through the state-of-the-art jets of the late 20th century. The history of Grumman is also about the history of Long Island and the people who worked there over the course of seven decades.

Scope of Collection

Images of the Grumman Aircraft Engineering Corporation that depict its founding in 1929, to its state of the art jets of the late 20th century, its history on Long Island and the people who worked there over the course of seven decades.
