Abstract
Charles Fayette Taylor, 1894-1996 , BS 1915, MS in mechanical engineering,1920, Yale University, was an ensign in the Naval Reserve Corps during World War I, in charge of the Navy's Aeronautical Engine Laboratory in Washington, DC. From 1920 to 1923 he managed the U.S. Army's Air Service Laboratory at McCook Airfield in Dayton, Ohio, where he supervised engine endurance tests, aircraft flight tests, and fuel anti-knock tests. He directed airplane engine design and development at the Wright Aeronautical Corporation from 1923 to 1926, when the Wright Corporation was developing the air-cooled "Whirlwind" engine used on the flights of Lindbergh, Byrd, and Chamberlain. Taylor came to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1926 as an associate professor of aeronautical engineering; he was made professor and acting head of the course in engineering in 1931. In 1933 he left the aeronautical engineering department to become professor of mechanical engineering and director of the new Sloan Automotive Laboratory, a position he held until his retirement in 1960. His research on the internal combustion engine, both for the airplane and the automobile, included experiments on detonation, combustion, fuel composition, friction, air capacity, piston/valve ratios, high speed diesel engines, and engine thermodynamics. With his brother, Edward Story Taylor, director of the Gas Turbine Laboratory at MIT, he was co-author of the text The Internal Combustion Engine (1938, revised 1961), and in 1960 he published another text,  The Internal Combustion Engine in Theory and Practice. Upon retirement in 1960, he pursued his career as a professional artist noted for his metal sculptures.

Biography

Charles Fayette Taylor, professor of mechanical engineering at the Massachusetts Instiute of Technology (MIT), was born in New York City in 1894. He enrolled in the Sheffield Scientific School at Yale in 1912 and received the bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering in 1915. During World War I Taylor first served as a civilian inspector of aircraft material for the US Signal Corps. After three months he was appointed Ensign in the Naval Reserve Corps and placed in charge of the Navy’s Aeronautical Engine Laboratory in Washington, DC, a position he held for the duration of the war. In 1919 Taylor resigned from active service to return to Yale, and in 1920 he was awarded the master’s degree in mechanical engineering.

From 1920 to 1923, Taylor was the civilian engineer in charge of the US Army’s Air Service Laboratory at McCook Airfield in Dayton, Ohio. There he supervised numerous engine endurance tests, aircraft flight tests, and fuel anti-knock tests. Taylor next went to work for the Wright Aeronautical Corporation. He was in charge of airplane engine design and development from 1923 to 1926, when the Wright Corporation was developing the air-cooled “Whirlwind” engine used on the historic flights of Lindbergh, Byrd, and Chamberlain.

In 1926 Taylor began his long association with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He was first employed by the Institute as an associate professor of aeronautical engineering. By 1929 he had been promoted to professor and made acting head of the course in aeronautical engineering. He was formally placed in charge of the course in 1931 and continued in that position for the next two years.

In 1933 Taylor left the aeronautical engineering department to become professor of mechanical engineering and director of the new Sloan Automotive Laboratory, a position he held until his retirement in 1960. While he was director of the Sloan Laboratory, Taylor was active in basic research on the internal combustion engine, for both the airplane and the automobile. His studies included experiments on detonation, combustion, fuel composition, friction, air capacity, piston/valve ratios, high speed diesel engines, and engine thermodynamics. Throughout his career at MIT Taylor was teacher as well as researcher. He taught undergraduate courses, conducted graduate seminars, and supervised theses in aeronautical, chemical, and mechanical engineering. With his brother, Edward Story Taylor, who also taught at the Institute and directed its Gas Turbine Laboratory, he co-authored the text The Internal Combustion Engine (1938, revised 1961). In 1960 C. F. Taylor published another text,  The Internal Combustion Engine in Theory and Practice.

During this period, Taylor’s activity was not limited to MIT. He traveled frequently as a guest lecturer to universities in Europe, the Orient, and South America. He was an instructor at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in 1949, the Danish Technical Institute in 1960, and Cambridge University in 1962. As a Fulbright Scholar, he lectured at Delft Technical Institute, Holland, in 1955, and at the University of the Republic of Uruguay in 1965. While at MIT Taylor also served as consultant to several engine manufacturers, among them the Ethyl Corporation, General Electric, Ingersoll Rand, Westinghouse, and the Wright Aeronautical Corporation.

Upon his retirement, Taylor became a professional artist. He is most noted for his work in metal sculpture, but he also produced paintings, etchings, and wall pieces. He had works commissioned by civic groups and companies and exhibited at galleries throughout the Northeast and in Florida.

Charles Fayette Taylor died June 22, 1996.

 Series 3. Technical Files 

Scope and Contents note

This series contains an extensive compilation of early research literature on the internal combustion engine. The file was begun during the years 1920-1923 while Taylor was working at the Army’s Air Service Laboratory in Dayton, Ohio. He continued to maintain and add to the file through his engineering career. When he became director of the Sloan Automotive Laboratory in 1933, the file was moved to the laboratory where it was used by all members of the Sloan staff.

The technical file consists of reprints and technical reports arranged by subject and classified using a numerical code devised by Taylor. It was accompanied by a card index which has been microfilmed and is located in box 4, folders 46-47. The index is arranged in the same way as the material itself, utilizing the same numerical classification scheme, but in addition, it includes citations to reprints which do not appear in the technical file. Details of the classification are in box 4, folder 47A..

When preparing a lecture or article, Taylor often pulled items from the technical file and placed them in folders arranged by subject or author, sometimes combining them with additional material. Two such files were found in the Taylor papers. Because both of these files contain added material which never received a subject classification by Taylor, they have not been integrated into the numerically coded file. Thus, in order to consult all the material on a single topic, it is necessary to search both the numerically classified file (boxes 5-29) and the smaller subject and author files (boxes 30-34).

Also included is a collection of glass slides (box 41) which Taylor used for lectures and book illustrations. These were classified by the same numerical scheme used for the technical file. The slides have been photocopied, and the copies are in box 4. Separated from the collection was a group of National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) technical reports, which are available in the MIT Libraries collection.

Arrangement note

Reprints, technical reports, card index, and glass slides, arranged in the following five subseries: 3A. Card index (on microfilm; in order by numerical subject classification); 3B. Glass slides (photocopied; in order by numerical subject classification); 3C. Reprints (by numerical subject classification); 3D. Reprints (alphabetical by subject); and 3E.
