Museum archive project
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Post subject: Museum archive project

hello!
I normally try not to solicit stuff on here, but I would like to share this with you. Our museum id crowdfunding to upgrade our archives. What does that have to do with AFV's? Well, we have a ton of stuff in the archive that is AFV related, including a box of stuff from Cadillac Gage and a slew of slides that we think are of the XM1 PV9 being tested at Ft. Knox.
If we reach our goal, this "stuff" will get organized, cataloged, and made available for research. If we get enough money, we hope to pay an intern to start scanning and maybe some goodies will end up on here!

Pleas check out the site, if you cannot donate, please share!

Thanks
Chris

Just an idea of some of the stuff that will get cataloged if we meet our fundraising goal:

Frankly I'm not either - with any specific forum that is - but here is one

FYI, the Morrow Project was a 1980s role playing game that featured a LOT of Cadillac Gage vehicles.

Got it!
We have more than Cadillac Gage
Here are some of the images we have scanned, with the new computers we hope to get everything scanned and cataloged.
Help us preserve this stuff correctly.

Chris, I see a reference to the XM-571 (aka: Canadair Dynatrac). I have a full hard copy brochure on that item, already scanned. If that's of interest let me know and I'll trickle it out in bits to an email if you provide one.

That would be cool to see. Use chris.causley @ mimths.org
If any of you are in the Detroit area, we are always looking for volunteers to help around the museum. We also welcome researchers, things in the archive are not in the best state of organization, but we are trying to fix that.

Help out here

Hey folks!
This is the last week of this fundraiser, Great News! We went over some the numbers today, and based on what we have raised so far, along with some offline donations of cash and materiel, we only need to raise $500 more to get the archive and exhibit completed!

So we are asking everyone to help us meet that goal and allow us to keep the project on track for this winter!

Naturally, we would like to raise the additional $2000 to replace the windows while we are at it, but honestly, that part of the project can be postponed if need be. Unless of course, someone wants to step up and sponsor the two windows...

Donate here!
