The National Aviation Hall of Fame nominates and enshrines individuals in recognition of achievment in the developement of aviation. Nomination for enshrinement into the NAHF is conducted by a Board of Nominations and its Screening Committee. Nominations can be made by any member of the NAHF. The nominee's accomplishments are reviewed by the Screening Committee and, if approved, the nominee's name is placed on the official ballot.
     Twenty of the members of The Early Birds are found among the 155 enshrinees of the National Aviation Hall of Fame. Each entry includes a portrait of the enshrinee and about a page recounting his life story. I highly recommend this site to your attention.
     Several years ago I was given permission by Shari Christy, then Archivist/Curator and Mike Jackson, Executive Director, to link directly to their site. I am very grateful for their gracious cooperation.
