ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

This National Register Bulletin was partially funded by the Department of Defense Legacy Resources Management Program in partnership with the Naval Historical Center, and was written through a cooperative agreement between the National Maritime Initiative, National Park Service, and the National Conference of State Historic Preservation Officers.

The Bulletin was prepared by Anne Millbrooke, Historian, Bozeman, Montana, in association with Patrick W. Andrus, Historian, National Register of Historic Places, David B. Whipple, Historian, the National Maritime Initiative, National Park Service, while on assignment to the Naval Historical Center, and Jody Cook, Historian, National Park Service, Southeast Region. Ms. Millbrooke prepared the sections on aviation in American history, types of historic aviation properties, applying the National Register criteria to historic aviation properties, nominating historic aviation properties, and the list of recommended sources. Mr. Andrus prepared the sections on evaluating integrity of location and setting, and preparing the National Register nomination. Mr. Whipple prepared the sections on evaluating the integrity of an aircraft's materials, the nature of aircraft maintenance, and evaluating the qualities of design, workmanship, feeling, and association. Jody Cook of the National Park Service's Southeast Region added substantially to the history of aviation section.
