Introduction

The Reinhardt N. Ausmus Collection is part of the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center's Charles E. Frohman Collection. The Frohman Collection documents the history of the Erie Islands and the area along Lake Erie's western basin.

Biographical Sketch

Born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1896, Reinhardt N. Ausmus spent much of his youth in an area orphanage. He eventually settled in Sandusky, Ohio where in 1912 he built and flew his first airplane. As an early instructor and designer of aircraft, he worked closely with the prominent pioneer aviator Tom Benoist who had established a flying school at Sandusky's Battery Park. Ausmus' flights with the Benoist Aeroplane Company qualified him for entry into the Early Birds, an organization of pioneer aviators who piloted heavier-than-air planes prior to December of 1913. Ausmus enlisted in the 198th Air Squadron at Columbus, Ohio in 1913 and was discharged as a sergeant at Wichita Falls, Texas where he had trained pilots during WWI. In 1947, Ausmus was appointed permanent service officer of the local American Legion. He also held the post of service officer of the Erie County Soldier's Relief Commission for twenty years. He retired in 1969, after devoting much of his life to working with the veterans of Erie County. Sandusky awarded him its Outstanding Community Service award in 1968. In 1970, the United States Air Force placed his name on its Roster of Fame in the Air Force Museum at Dayton, Ohio. Following the death of his wife, Mary (Williams), in 1958, Ausmus married Ruth Swint. Ausmus died at Sandusky, Ohio in 1970.

Scope and Contents

The Reinhardt N. Ausmus Collection documents the development of aviation in the United States in general and in the Sandusky, Ohio area in particular. The collection contains some 200 volumes and 5000 items, spanning the years from 1900 to 1970. Within the collection are some 600 photographic prints of pioneer aviators, early airplanes, airfields, and aviation companies. Numerous books, pamphlets, brochures, guides, directories, and programs focus on the pioneering aviation period. Additionally, extensive files appear for Ausmus, the Early Birds, Charles Lindbergh, pioneer aviators, and the history of aviation. Of particular importance is the material Ausmus collected on the Roberts Motor Company of Sandusky, Ohio, an early manufacturer of airplane engines. Company catalogs (1908-1917), business correspondence, photographs, and approximately sixteen hundred blueprints (oversize) form the bulk of the company's records preserved within the collection.
