This accession consists of records documenting the activities of the United States Centennial of Flight Commission. The Centennial of Flight Commission was created on November 13, 1998, by the Centennial of Flight Commemoration Act. The purpose of the Commission was to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Orville and Wilbur Wright's flight in the Wright Flyer at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, on December 17, 1903. The Commission was responsible for providing recommendations and advice to the President, the Congress, and federal agencies on the most effective ways to encourage and promote national and international participation and sponsorships in commemoration of the centennial of powered flight. These records were created and maintained by Donald Davenport Engen, Director of the National Air and Space Museum, 1996-1999, and John R. Dailey, Director of the National Air and Space Museum, 2000- , who served as members of the Commission in turn. Materials include correspondence, meeting materials, reports, briefing documents, event planning materials, copies of legislative documents, images, and related materials. Some materials are in electronic format.
