Small piece of the USS Shenandoah, 2-3/4"x1-1/2, with letter of provenance signed by "M. Ducar" 1pp. quarto, and reads in part: "...I, M. Duar, of Lorain, Ohio, County of Lorain, make an oath and say; That on September 3rd, 1925, I was living in Pleasant City, Ohio, about three miles from Ava, Ohio. And, That on September 3rd, 1925, the Dirigible Shenandoah Z-R-1 crashed at Ava, Ohio, during a storm, and I viewed the wrecked ship...I picked up a piece of the gas bag for a souvenir. Piece of this cloth attached to affidavit. Notarized. Fine condition. USS Shenandoah was the first of four United States Navy rigid airships. It was constructed during 1922-23 at Lakehurst Naval Air Station, and first flew in September 1923. It developed the U.S. Navy's experience with rigid airships, and made the first crossing of North America by airship. On the 57th flight, Shenandoah was destroyed in a squall line over Ohio in September 1925.
