Subseries 1. Research Materials

Scope and Content Notes:

While these files offer very little insight into Ennis Whitehead’s personal life, they create an excellent portrait of his entire military career with the United States Army Air Corps and Air Force. Dating from 1918-1967, the Whitehead correspondence is especially noteworthy, as it contains his official military correspondence with various military commanders, and his private letters to family members. His military career is further illuminated through flight logs, maps, memoranda, military histories, newspaper clippings, and subject files. The files are arranged alphabetically by record type.
