Scope and Contents:
This collection contains the file of still photographs taken by the Air Force Material Division at McCook Field, Wright Field, and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. The material consists of over 340,000 black and white and color photographs illustrating the design, development and testing of military aircraft; structural components; and personal, emergency, and survival equipment. The collection also contains documentation of unsatisfactory materials and components, aircraft accident investigations, publicity, and development of McCook Field facilities to the present day Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. The majority of the photos were taken as integral parts of the testing or investigation procedure for inclusion in resulting reports.
Biographical / Historical:
In 1917 the United States Army Air Service established an aviation engineering section at McCook Field in Dayton, OH. In 1927 the Engineering Division, as it was then known, moved to nearby Wilbur Wright Field and there remained as the Air Force Material Division (AFMD) and Air Material Command (AMC) until Wright Field combined with Patterson Field to become Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in 1948. The Engineering Division was in charge of research and development for the Army Air Services and was a clearinghouse for the Army Air Services on aviation development worldwide.

This collection contains yearbooks, membership rosters, songbooks, photographs, correspondence, etc. from her WASP career.

Arrangement:
Arranged by type of material.
Biographical / Historical:
With the entry of the United States into World War II, many American women pilots longed to volunteer their skills to serve their country but were barred from flying for the US military due to their gender. Some American women pilots, including well-known racing pilot Jacqueline "Jackie" Cochran, had already offered their services to the British Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA), ferrying aircraft from the manufacturers to and between air bases and freeing up male Royal Air Force (RAF) pilots for other duties. Cochran's experience with the ATA led her to lobby long and hard for a similar organization in the US. Initially, two organizations were formed to allow American women pilots to participate in the war effort. On September 10, 1942, the Women's Auxiliary Ferrying Squadron (WAFS), consisting of commercially licensed women pilots under the leadership of Nancy Harkness Love, was created as part of the US Army Air Corps' Air Transport Command. On November 16, 1942, a women pilot training program designed to supply pilots for the WAFS was begun under Cochran's leadership as the Women's Flying Training Detachment (WFTD). Initially based at Howard Hughes Municipal Airport in Houston, Texas, the WFTD was soon moved to Avenger Field at Sweetwater, Texas. On August 5, 1943, the WAFS and the WFTD were merged to form the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP), with Cochran as director of the WASP and its training division and Love as director of the ferrying division. Between November 17, 1942, and December 7, 1944, the 1,074 women who earned WASP wings flew 60 million miles for the US Army Air Corps. From light aircraft, the WASPs advanced quickly to fly every type of Air Corps aircraft in use at the time. Except for aerial gunnery and formation flying, these women received the same training as the male pilots. WASPs ferried planes, towed anti-aircraft artillery training targets, flew tracking, simulated bombing missions, performed radio control, flight tested aircraft, gave instrument instruction and performed many other duties. Their work allowed more men to participate in aviation combat roles.

Bernice Falk Haydu (1920-2021) was a member of WASP class 44-7. Known as Bee Falk at the time, she volunteered for the civilian Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) in early 1944 because she loved flying and wanted to help the war effort. She trained for seven months at Avenger Field in Sweetwater, Texas, where she logged 210 hours in various aircraft. She went on to serve at Pecos Army Airfield as an engineering test pilot and a utility pilot before the WASP program was canceled in December 1944. After the war, she worked as a freelance flight instructor, ferry pilot, and later owned a Cessna dealership and flight school. Haydu served as president of the WASP alumni association, Order of the Fifinella, between 1975-78, spearheading efforts for recognition for the WASP. In 1977, the WASP were granted military veteran status. Haydu was one of three surviving WASP to stand beside President Obama in 2009 as he awarded the Congressional Gold Medal to the WASP for their service during World War II.

Biographical Materials

Collection Creator:
Herbert, Don (Donald Jeffry), 1917-2007  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1906 - 2007
Scope and Contents:
The biographical materials consist of photographs, correspondence, marriage certificates, birth certificates, agreements and contracts for theater work, letters of reference from the State Teachers College (La Crosse, Wisconsin), report cards, newspaper clippings, poems, yearbook pages, and programs for plays. Much of the biographical information was assembled by Herbert and arranged in chronological order. The Army Air Corps documentation comprises the bulk of the biographical materials.

The Army Air Corps materials contain photographs, newspaper clippings, maps, telegrams, money, opera programs, notes, certificates, invitations, physical examination records, and other ephemera relating to Herbert's service in the United States Army Air Corps, 461 Bomb Group and 767 Bomb Squadron in Europe. The majority of the materials date from 1940 to 1947, although there are some reminiscences from a 1952 visit to Italy by Don and Maraleita Herbert as well as a 1991 letter from a family member seeking information about a fellow Army Air Corps officer, and a 2011 reminiscence of Barton Dean, a fellow Army Air Corps officer. Herbert enlisted in 1942 and began service in February of 1943. He rose to a rank of captain and was discharged in 1947. The photographs document crew members and other military personnel Herbert served with both on base and while traveling in Tel Aviv, Cairo, and Rome. A Naples street artist rendering (1944) of Herbert in colored pencil is included here.

Also included are materials documenting Maraleita Dutton Herbert, the first wife of Don Herbert. These include photographs, commissary passes, and articles about her work as a journalist/reporter in Santa Monica, California.

The general correspondence, 1951-2007, consists of congratulatory letters about the Watch Mr. Wizard program and speaking invitations.
