Biographical / Historical:
In an effort to assist the war in 1917, J. G. White and Company of New York established the Springfield Aircraft Corporation, in Springfield, Massachusetts. Through the persistence of the corporation's vice-president and general manager, Willis M. Rose, and K. D. Owen, production manager, the corporation was awarded a contract to build more than 500 Curtiss JN-4D training aircraft.
