The University of Lowell Hang Gliding Club

The University of Lowell Hang Gliding Club was established in 1974 by faculty member Bill Blood and the late Dr John Kelly. The club was active until the early 1990s. They had events in Claremont, N.H. and Groton, Mass. and won several intercollegiate competition awards. The collection consists of photos, videos and the plans for an experimental hang glider designed by ULowell student and club member Craig Douglas in 1980.
