EAA LIBRARY ARCHIVES – Zeigler Collection

In 1980, William J. Zeigler donated a collection of 200 glass plate negatives to the EAA Library. The subject matter of these photographs is pre-1914 German aircraft. A few other images depict American, French and English airplanes.

The major portion of these images remain unidentified and therefore not cataloged. Contact prints were made from some of the negatives. A brief article about the collection appeared in the April 1994 issue of the VINTAGE AIRPLANE magazine.

Examples from the collection are shown below.


Antoinette (Z-121)

Farman (Z-108)

Fokker (Z-105)

Aviatik Seedoppledecker









Taube (Z-018)

Avro 503 (Z-012)


These photos and many others can be purchased from the EAA Library by calling 920.426.4848 or email slurvey@eaa.org.
