The Minneapolis Public Library has been incorporating appropriate materials from its newspaper morgue into the Minneapolis Newspapers Aviation Collection. The library has sent to NASM materials that do not meet their needs. Several pieces of this collection have already been given their own accession numbers. From 2001 on, new gifts from the Minneapolis Public Library will be given the accession number from this record.
