Series III: Newsletters, 1950-2016


Content Description

From the Collection:

The Civil Aviation Medical Association Records span from 1948-2016 (bulk 1955-2008) and include organizational records and information on the organization’s affiliation with the Aerospace Medical Association. Researchers may gain insight through these records on the history of civil aviation medicine, the history of an international organization concerned with civil aviation medicine, relationships between aviation medical congresses, and aviation medical examiners.

Series I, Administration, consists of correspondence, constitution and by-laws, and organizational history of the Civil Aviation Medical Association with materials dated 1948-2014. This series includes the early history of the organization from 1948-1955, when it was known as the Airline Medical Examiners Association.

Series II, Meetings, consists of brochures, awards, photographs, and meeting minutes of annual meetings with materials dated 1948-2010. It includes excerpts from minutes of annual meetings of the Aerospace Medical Association that directly concern the Civil Aviation Medical Association. One item, a letter in the C.D. Henry Memorial Award file, is in Spanish.

Series III, Newsletters, consists of three differently-titled newsletters (1950-2016): News Bulletin, Bulletin, and Flight Physician. News Bulletin covers the period before the name change in 1955 as well as a few years after. The News Bulletin went on to become the Bulletin, which was published until 1997, when the Flight Physician became the newsletter of the Civil Aviation Medical Association. The newsletters from Series III are available online in CORE Scholar, Wright State University’s Campus Online Repository, at:
