Then we see the building just as it is now in '37. That indeed, the CAP Headquarters was in fact built during the Curry Command '32-36. He is also the person who recommended that Maxwell be used as the Tactical School HQ. It was originally suggested that it be at Bolling Washington DC Area, Staten Island, NY. and 2 other locations. John Curry assembled meteorological data from all locations and then wrote up the finished proposal for Maxwell. He then, as Assistant Commander of Langley, moved the command in late '31. Becoming the commander of the base in '32. I talked to his daughter last night. She was unaware of Claire Chennault coming to Maxwell in '32. She said her mother and father had many people over for dinner and enjoyed the company of both officers and enlisted... he even took a personal interest in the families and I have letters of congratulation for the birth of a child to Lt. Morrow for instance. Anyway, Curry at Maxwell is a very interesting tale. This is where American Airpower was framed and proceeded into the War years.
