Scope and Contents of the Materials

National Airlines was founded by George T. Baker in 1934 and used the Miami International Airport as its base of operations from 1934 to 1980. It began offering local flights within the United States, flying almost daily from coast to coast, and quickly expanded to offer passenger flights to Europe in the 1970s. Eventually, National Airlines sold its shares to Pan American World Airways, ceding control of most of its planes and air routes through the acquisition.

This collection currently contains advertisements, ephemera, pamphlets, scrapbooks, and graphic materials.
