Pioneers in Aviation : Purpose
Purpose and Historical Significance
There is surprisingly little information available on the history of Braniff in relation to the development of the DFW Metroplex. Various websites offer concise historical information, including some perspective from first -hand accounts, but the human experience is lacking for such a close-knit community which is what Braniff indeed fostered. There are also few historical texts. Through the use of oral history, this project intends to bring these experiences to the forefront and to preserve the memories of the Braniff family. The interviews are sure to shed light and understanding of continual change, growth and development, not only within oneself, but within the company and the DFW area.
