Biographical / Historical:
Clifford W. Henderson (1895-1984) was an aviation promoter and showman who managed the annual National Air Races from 1928 until 1939, bringing attention to the expanding field of sport aviation. Born in Iowa, Henderson graduated from the University of Southern California in 1917 with a Bachelor of Arts degree. He served in the 35th Ambulance Unit, France, during World War I, before transferring to the 101st Aero Squadron where he learned to fly. After the war, Henderson returned to California and was chairman of ground arrangements for the departure and return of the Army's Around the World Flight in 1924 from Clover Field in Santa Monica. In 1928 he became Director of Aviation of Los Angeles and served as the first manager of the Los Angeles airport system. Also in 1928 Henderson became director of the National Air Races and was responsible for interesting industry leaders in competition trophies, including the Thompson, Bendix, and Grieve Trophies. He retired from managing the National Air Races in 1939. Henderson served in the Army Air Corps during World War II, rising to the rank of colonel. He played an instrumental role in planning the Burma Hump air route, and also served as military governor of Dakar in North Africa. After the war, Henderson was suffering from illness and injuries sustained in Africa, and so went to recuperate in California where he founded Palm Desert, California. He remained active in the Palm Desert community until his death in 1984.

Summary:
King George VI and Queen Elizabeth with American General Jimmy Doolittle of the Eighth Air Force visited the billet and post exchange at the headquarters in London, England on May 16, 1945 for the third anniversary of the WAC.
Scope and Contents:
This collection consists of seven photographs relating to King George VI and Queen Elizabeth's inspection of the US Women's Army Corps (WAC) assigned to the Eighth Air Force at the US Strategic and Tactical Air Forces in Europe. Visiting their Headquarters in London on May 16, 1945, they were joined by American General Jimmy Doolittle to celebrate the WAC's third anniversary.
Biographical / Historical:
The Women's Army Corps (WAC) was a US Army unit created during World War II to enable women to serve in noncombat positions. It was first established as the Women's Auxiliary Army Corps (WAAC) on May 15, 1942 but dropped "Auxiliary" when it gained active-duty status on July 1, 1943. Women who served often held clerical jobs such as file clerk, stenographer, and switchboard operator, but also nontraditional roles such as radio operator, mechanic, and cryptologist. During World War II, about half of the WAC personnel were sent overseas to serve in Europe. Some of the first assignments were with the Eighth Air Force at the US Strategic and Tactical Air Forces. The WAC continued operations through the Vietnam War until 1978 when all female and male units were integrated.

Scope and Contents:

Arrangement:
There are two Series: Scrapbooks and Loose Photographs. Dates, condition, and a brief description of item-level content are listed below.
Biographical/Historical note:
James H. Doolittle's (1896-1993) piloting career spanned military aviation history and his professional contributions to the aviation field, especially in the area of instrument flying, made a lasting impact. Doolittle became an Army aviator in 1917 and received a Doctor of Science in Aeronautical Engineering degree from MIT in 1925. During the 1920s and 1930s, Doolittle won many speed, cross-country and transcontinental records and trophies and is often referred to as the "Father of Instrument Flying," because he demonstrated "instrument only flight" in 1929. He left the military in 1930 to become manager of Shell Oil Company's aviation department, but returned to the Army during World War II. During World War II, Doolittle led the first raid on the Japanese mainland in 1942, and was later promoted to the commander of the 12th, 15th, and 8th Air Forces. He returned to civilian life in 1946 and served as a trustee of aviation and space companies and as a member of numerous organizational and government boards, panels, and committees.
