Abstract

The Bell Helicopter Records document seventy-one years of Bell Helicopter Textron's corporate history. The collection includes manuscript materials such as corporate memos, correspondence, planning documents, reports, studies, white papers, and spec sheets; photographs of various aircraft, noteworthy public figures, and production facilities in Hurst, TX, Amarillo, TX, Buffalo, NY, and Mirabel, Quebec, Canada; and film recordings for promotional, engineering, and training purposes. Major highlights include the UH-1, or Huey, series of helicopter, the Vietnam War, the V-22 Osprey tiltrotor aircraft, and commercial aircraft including the Bell 47, the first helicopter certified for civilian use; the Bell 222 twin-engine light helicopter; the Bell 206 family, including the JetRanger and LongRanger models; and Bell 400 TwinRanger.

Scope and Contents of the Materials

The Bell Helicopter Records document seventy-one years of aviation history, including aircraft development and testing, military contracts, civil aviation, corporate life, and the growth of the Hurst-Euless-Bedford area of Dallas-Fort Worth. The majority of the collection is composed on audio-visual recordings and photographic negatives. The collection also contains office records such as memoranda, press releases, ad scripts, reports, and presentation text, many of these created by former executives of Bell Helicopter. The collection also contains a reference library of aircraft specifications, maintenance and user manuals, and promotional material that had been built and maintained by Bell Helicopter over several decades for the use of its employees.

The bulk of the helicopter information in these records concerns Bell’s military aircraft, though there is also significant coverage of its civilian craft, particularly the Model 47 (the first commercial helicopter certified by the FAA), the Bell 222 twin-engine light helicopter, the 206 family (including TwinRanger, LongRanger, and JetRanger variants), the 214 and 214ST medium lift helicopters, and the four-blade Bell 407 frequently used by law enforcement and news organizations.

A particular area of focus for this collection is the UH-1, or Huey, helicopter. A staple of the Vietnam War, over 7,000 Hueys were built at the Hurst, TX facility for use in Vietnam from 1962 to 1975. The collection documents the development and rollout of the experimental YH-40 model, the UH-1D and UH-1H troop transport models, the UH-1C attack helicopter, the UH-1E Marine Corps variant, and the twin-engine UH-1N, as well as other models in the Huey family.

Other military helicopters documented in this collection include the H-13 Sioux light observation helicopter (used during the Korean War), the Bell 207 Sioux Scout, the AH-1 Cobra and SuperCobra attack helicopters, and the OH58 Kiowa and OH-58D Kiowa Warrior observation helicopters.

Much of the collection covers Bell Helicopter’s role in the development of tiltrotor aircraft. This coverage includes early test flights of the XV-3 in the 1950s, the development and testing of the XV-15 in the 1970s and 1980s, and the rollout of the V-22 Osprey in 1989. The V-22 is extensively documented in photographs, promotional material, and press releases about the development of the aircraft.

Collection Historical Note

Founded by aviation pioneer Lawrence Dale Bell, the company that eventually became Bell Helicopter began as part of Bell Aircraft Corporation in Buffalo, NY. In 1941, Bell made an offer to Art Young, an early pioneer in helicopter design, to join the company and provide expertise on rotor wing aircraft designs. That partnership produced the Bell 30 and the Bell 47, the first helicopter certified for civilian use.

The helicopter division of the company began to exert more indepedence as its output of rotor wing aircraft began to rival Bell Aircraft's output of fixed wing aircraft. In 1951, the entire division established a new headquarters in Hurst, TX. When technology conglomerate Textron purchased Bell Aerospace in 1960, it spun off the helicopter division to create Bell Helicopter as a separate corporation.

Bell Helicopter has become one of the largest manufacturers of both military and commercial aircraft in North America, with facilities in Hurst and Amarillo, TX and Mirabel, Quebec. The company is particularly known for manufacturing the UH-1, or Huey, series of helicopters, which were the workhorse aircraft for combat, troop transport, and medevac operations during the Vietnam War, and for pioneering vertical take-off and landing aircraft design with the experimental XV-15 and its full-production version, the V-22 Osprey. It also manufactures an array of civilian aircraft, including the Bell 407 frequently used by law enforcement agencies, television news stations, and for aerial filmmaking and photography, and the Bell 222, seen in the television series Airwolf.

Acquisition Source: Bell Helicopter Textron
Acquisition Method: Donation
Appraisal Information:

Prior to donating the materials, Bell Helicopter staff reviewed the collection to remove sensitive personnel records, proprietary company records, and any records still under government classification.

A team of archivists from UNT Libraries visited the Hurst facility in June 2015 to appraise the records and advise on what types of material would be best suited for preservation. The archivists were concerned about the space constraints involved in accepting a large amount of engineering data that might have limited value in regards to the history of the company--this would include materials testing and strain test results that would be all but impossible for a person without a background in engineering to understand. After some deliberation the archivists decided that this engineering and scientific data might have value to audiences that were not traditional users of archives, and the engineering data Bell intended to transfer was not as large as previously thought. The archivists retained this material, with the exception of three linear feet of photo-negatives labeled "MET Lab."

MET Lab refers to the metellurgical lab, which conducted microscopic analysis of aircraft materials. These negatives were microscopic photographs of unidentifiable material samples, and could not be traced to any written test reports. Representatives from Bell did not believe that there was anyone capable of providing information about the MET Lab negatives, so these materials were deaccessioned from the collection.

In addition to the MET Lab negatives, the archivists deaccessioned multiple copies of records. Among the manuscripts were several hundred identical copies of aircraft brochures. The archivists retained three copies of each of these and deaccessioned the remainder.
