A digital scan of the unpublished manuscript, Don't stand behind the fan (Jet that is) written by Henry Leo (Hap) Hudson Sr. The manuscript documents Mr. Hudson's experiences while working at Lockheed-Georgia from 1952 to 1988. He was the first African American supervisor and buyer at Lockheed-Georgia. The title of the manuscript comes from the process of testing the damage done to turbo and jet engines by objects flying into them during flight. Standing behind the fan would result in being splattered with the debris.

The manuscript was published in 2015 with additional notes and illustrations by Dr. Randall Patton, Professor of History at Kennesaw State University as, "Working for equality: The narrative of Harry Hudson."
