Harry Smith's Collection of Paper Planes Found On The Streets Of NYC

Harry Everett Smith was a painter, anthropologist and collector of oddball items and groups of objects, including over 250 paper airplanes that he found on the street. He would pick up these lost paper objects and tag each one with the time and location of their finding.

He donated 250 of these paper airplanes to the Smithsonian Institution's National Air and Space Museum in the eighties.
