Notes:
Ernest L. Jones (1883-1955) spent most of his life involved in aviation. He edited the first American aviation journal, Aeronautics (1907-15) and was a cofounder of the Early Birds, the society of pre-1916 flyers. In 1912 he became president of the Aeronautics Manufacturers Association and in 1917 handled publicity for Wright Aeronautical. During World War I Jones received a commission in the Army Air Service, later becoming chief information officer. He wrote a history of the Air Service of the American Expeditionary Force before becoming the editor of National Aeronautical Review (1924-1926). Jones was appointed by Secretary of Commerce Hoover to set up the aeronautical branch of the Commerce Department, which later grew into the Civil Aeronautics Administration and Federal Aviation Administration. During the 1930s he was involved in a number of projects relating to commercial aviation. In 1941 he rejoined the Army Air Corps as a major in intelligence but in 1943 he was transferred to the history division where he compiled an aeronautical history. He retired from the Air Corps in 1949, but continued as a civilian employee until the early 1950s.
Summary:
This collection consists of aeronautical photographs collected by Major Ernest Jones between 1906 and 1917 and notebooks which recorded major aviation events. The prints were either taken by Major Jones or were purchased or given to him by the US Army, Navy, individuals, or manufacturers. The notebooks were created by Jones and include newspaper clippings and handwritten notes by him on major aviation events up until 1937.
