  1. Hal Shelton manuscript map collection

    chiefly manuscript maps . 33 maps; 1 exhibit flyer; and 2 audio cassettes. -- Geography and Map Division, Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.


    The Hal Shelton collection contains 33 manuscript maps, an exhibit flyer, and an interview with Shelton on two audio tapes. NASA employed this collection of maps by Shelton to index photos of Earth taken on early space missions. The maps represent Shelton's use of natural colors that added realism in the depiction of landforms while retaining orthographically accurate position and scale for each feature. Shelton worked for the U.S.G.S. from 1938 until 1949. He later made maps for Jeppesen Co. and the Times Mirror Company from the 1950s to the 1970s.
