Collection Historical Note

“Ron” Shanin was born in Shanghai, China in 1921.  He moved to America with his parents at the age of two, and earned a Bachelor of Science in Aeronautical Engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1942.

For six years he was a flight engineer with Pan American World Airways.  Based in Miami and New York, he flew to Johannesburg, Leopoldville, Cairo, London, Paris, Lisbon, Rome, Istanbul, Baghdad, and Calcutta.  During this time he crossed the Atlantic 148 times.  In the 1940’s he was a commercial pilot and flight instructor.

Immediately after World War II, he worked in the Air Technical Intelligence Command of the U. S. Air Force, interrogating German scientists to gather information about Germany’s rocket developments.  He spent the next 13 years as a rocket development engineer on the Bell X-2 rocket research aircraft and Discoverer and Ranger moon probes for the Curtiss Wright Corp. and the Bell Aerospace Corp.

In 1953 he traded his hobby for his profession and his profession for his hobby.  Rockets became his hobby, and capturing animals for zoos and making adventure films his profession.  When he resigned from the Bell Aerospace Corp. in 1953, he was chief of the Contract Administration Dept. of the Research Division.

His first film, “Lion Country”, was produced in Central Africa in 1943 and was purchased by an educational film distributor in New York City.  It has been used extensively by schools in America.

His next film, “Rivers of Fire and Ice”, was produced in Central and East Africa.  The planning, shooting and editing required over five years and cost the lives of two men.  It has been translated into 24 languages and exhibited in 38 countries.  Scenes from it were used by Columbia Pictures for the cinemascope feature “The Devil at 4 o’clock” starring Frank Sinatra and Spencer Tracy.

He later produced “Giants of the Deep” off the coast of South Africa.  That film was followed by “The Pulse of Africa” which was filmed in South and Central Africa.  These last two films have been exhibited widely on four continents.  Shanin  supplied the U. S. Navy with films of venomous snakes of Africa for its Global Medicine Training Program.

Some of his films have been used in the TV series “High Adventure with Lowell Thomas” and the international TV series “Expedition”.  He  appeared five times before the National Geographic Society in Washington to lecture to its members.

The animals he captured have been exhibited in zoos throughout America, and his photos have appeared in LIFE, LOOK, TIME, NEWSWEEK, SPORTS ILLUSTRATED, TRUE ADVENTURE, and the McGraw-Hill ENCYCLOPEDIA OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY.
