The Association has received from the Documentary Research
Division, Air University Library, Air University, Maxwell Air
Force Base, Alabama, a two-volume study on The Question of
Autonomy for the United States Air Arm, 1907-1945.
This study is the work of Dr. R. Earl McClendon, a former
history major in the University of Texas. In the preface the au-
thor says that in view of the provisions of the National Security
Act of 1947 which gives the United States military air arm a
position coordinate with the army and navy in the system of
national defense, it is reasonable to assume that a background of
knowledge relating to the struggle for autonomy is desirable and
valuable. These two volumes provide that background.
The author, aware of the controversial aspects of his subject,
has tried to be altogether objective and has succeeded well. A
sequel to these volumes to cover the story since "unification" is
in process of preparation by Dr. McClendon.
