About this Item

This career U.S. Army officer was instrumental in establishing the air force as a separate branch of service, transferring into the new U.S. Air Force in 1920; rose through the ranks in aircraft production and instructional capacities to major general, named chief of the Air Corps in 1935; killed when the airplane he was piloting crashed upon landing in Burbank, California. TNS, 1p, 8" X 7", Washington, DC, 1934 March 12. Addressed to Lewis Thuringer. Very good. Odd note -- boldly signed in blue fountain pen -- refusing to send his autograph: "I regret very much that I am unable to accommodate you with my autograph. I make it a point to restrict my autograph to friends of long standing.". Bookseller Inventory # 31371
