Notes:
The Aero Club of America, established in 1905, was reorganized in 1922 as the National Aeronautic Association (NAA). The NAA was created to advance the 'art and science of aviation and related subjects and the diffusion of knowledge thereof by educational means.' The NAA has tried to meet this goal by keeping the public informed on the importance of aeronautics and space, by instituting space education programs to stimulate youth interest and by promoting and aiding competitive and sporting aeronautic events.
Summary:
This collection consists of records of the NAA. The material includes documents on programs to heighten public awareness of aviation, such as the NAA newsletter and material on special events staged by NAA; material relating to the NAA's educational programs and clubs, such as college aviation clubs; material outlining NAA's active role in supporting and promoting competitive aeronautic events. The collection also includes F.A.I. license cards, business records, minutes, and correspondence of the NAA and material on aviation awards supported or given by NAA such as the Wright and Collier Trophies.

For an administrative history of the Department of Aeronautics, consult the NASM curatorial departments agency history subrecord, 1960-1991.
Summary:
The Department of Aeronautics had its origin in the Section of Aeronautics under the United States National Museum. Aeronautics remained the chief activity of the National Air Museum, created in 1946, until the space age. In 1966 Congress authorized construction of the newly-renamed National Air and Space Museum. By 1966, Paul E. Garber, who had joined the staff in 1919 and been assistant curator for Aeronautics since 1933, held the title of Assistant Director for Education and Information. Aeronautics was divided into three sections: Flight Craft, Flight Propulsion, and Flight Materiel, headed by curators Louis S. Casey, Kenneth E. Newland, and Robert B. Meyer, respectively. In 1971, Director Michael Collins named Donald S. Lopez Assistant Director for Aeronautics. In 1980 his title was changed to Chairman, Aeronautics Department. Lopez served as Chairman until 1983 when he became Deputy Director of the museum and Edmund T. Wooldridge, Jr., became chairman, serving until 1986. These records consist of the correspondence files of the Aeronautics Department, 1966-1986, arranged alphabetically. They document the day-to-day concerns with exhibitions, loans, and research through a period which included planning for the new museum, moving, installation of many major exhibition halls, and the emergence of NASM as the most popular museum in the world. Also included are internal memoranda, the Milestones of Flight First Day Cover series, files of correspondence with artists and modelers, and a few subject files.
