Vachon correspondence, 1971-1977

This series consists of four typed letters collected by Fernando Vachon. One letter, written in 1971 by P.J. Moloney, a Urologist at Vancouver General Hospital, is perhaps related to Fernando Vachon’s contribution to the construction of a hemodialysis machine. One of the letters concerns an airlift crane write-up by Vachon and Kenneth G. Fraser in 1971, submitted to Boeing Aerospace Group, Vertol Division, in Pennsylvania. The remaining two letters are to do with Vachon’s retirement from CP Air in 1977.
