     I have this handbook that was given to Army Air Force personel in 1942, and issued as "Special Defense Edition".
     Inside of this handbook (which has the owners name written on the cover) I found a newspaper clipping from December 25 1942 with reference to this person as being a person who worked on the famous "Norden Bombsight" at the Air Technical Service Command in San Bernardino California.
     My question, which is mostly geared to collectors of this item, is; what could this possibly be worth, or, if of no value, is their a Military Historical Place relating to "Radio" that I could donate it too.
     Thank you all in advance for your help.

The USAF Museum at Wright-Patterson AFB OH might be interested in the book and clipping, particularly with the references to the Norden Bomb Sight.  Don't have their e-mail address at hand, but a Google-search should turn up the correct site and sub-section dealing with potential contributions.
