Another flying disc pioneer was Ernest "Bill" Robes, a noted New Hampshire skier in the 1930s and '40s.
In the early 1950s he began tinkering with flying discs which he made by pressing sheets of hot Bolteron plastic onto an upside-down washing machine agitator…then hand stamping them with the name "Space Saucer."
The first plastic-injected-molded Space Saucers appeared in 1955, many of which were soon sold in the Dartmouth and Yale Co-ops.
When Bill quit in 1962 he had produced quite a number of collectible styles and color patterns of Space Saucers…many of which are on display in this wing of the Museum.
