Anti-Concorde Project and related material... Anti-Concorde Project and related material, 1962-2003
Advisory committee circulated minutes and papers, 1969-1974; copies of press cuttings and other circulated material, 1967-1981; subject files compiled by the secretary of the project (mainly copies of press cutttings), 1962-1973; miscellaneous, 1962-2003.
Following growing concern about the possible effects of the sonic boom, the project was founded in 1966 to oppose the development of the Anglo-French supersonic airliner. A major feature of its activity was the production of a large quantity of mainly duplicated publicity material, much of it reprinting and commenting on the views of both supporters and opponents of Concorde.
Reference: Richard Wiggs, 'Concorde, the case against supersonic transport' (London, 1971); A Wilson, 'The Concorde fiasco' (Harmondsworth, 1973).
No appraisal, destruction or scheduling has taken place.
At the time of the deposit of this material, most of the extensive archives of the project remained in the custody of its founder and former secretary, Mr Richard Wiggs.
Some items of the Campaign for Action on Supersonic Engineering are also held at the Modern Records Centre (MSS.146).
