Researching auto designer Amos Northup

Recommended Posts

One and All:

I am posting this here for a good friend of mine in the Atlanta area. Hope you can help

Hello car friends!

I am researching the automotive designer of the 1920's and 1930's, Amos Northup, for part of a possible lecture series on automotive design for Georgia Tech's School of Industrial Design. Northup was responsible for starting the aerodynamic school of thinking in automotive design in the late 1920's and early 1930's. His designs include the 1932 Graham Blue Streak, the 1931 Reo Royale, the 1933 Willys 77 and later Willys designs of the 1930's and his most famous, the 1937 Graham Spirit of Motion, better known as the Sharknose Graham. Any leads or info you may uncover about any aspect of his life would be appreciated.

Thanking you in advance,

Rick Kamen

I know this is a very old thread, but I'm reactivating it. I am researching Amos Northup and am looking for any leads I can find. Does anyone know any family members of Mr Northup or where his papers have gone?
