Source of Acquisition

The Henry J. Kelley Papers were donated to Special Collections in 1988.

Processing Information

The collection was acquired in 1988 and minimal initial description was completed around that time. In 2012, materials were re-foldered and a folder-level inventory was created.


Biographical Note

Henry J. Kelley was born in 1926. He was an aerospace engineer and authority on flight optimization. In 1958, he completed a Sc.D. from New York University. From 1948-1963, he worked for Grumman Aircraft as a researcher and as assistant chief of the Research Department. In 1963, he founded Analytical Mechanics Associates, which worked with NASA on parameterized steering approaches for Apollo mission planning. From 1978 until the time of his death in 1988, he served as a professor of Aerospace and Ocean Engineering at Virginia Tech (held Christopher C. Kraft, Jr. Chair).

Scope and Contents

The Henry J. Kelley Papers include correspondence, notes, drafts and offprints of publications and research reports. Henry Kelley's original folder titles were used when the collection was re-housed and inventoried in 2012. The majority of the collection consists topic based subject/research files, files on individuals (correspondence, resumes, and papers), teaching/course materials, and conference/professional organizational files. There are drafts and final copies of papers by Kelley and others on a range of aerospace and other engineering topics.

The collection also includes slides and transparencies, most of which depict equations, charts, graphs, and occasional text. For the most part, these visual materials are unidentified.

Arrangement

With the exception of slides and transparencies, the collection was left in the order in which it was brought to Special Collections. It is unclear if this was Henry Kelley's original order. Kelley's original folder labels were maintained when the collection was rehoused in 2012. In the "Contents List" below, files are organized alphabetically to facilitate searching.

Although the slides are unidentified, most were grouped with rubber bands. Those groups were retained within the box of slides. Identified transparencies were left in their original groupings and are in Box 37. Unidentified transparencies are in Boxes 38-39.
