Jack B. Jaynes Papers

 Collection
Identifier: H003-68

Scope and Content

This collection contains documents, correspondence, newsletters, memoranda, clippings, reports, pamphlets, minutes, records, photographs, ephemera, and other materials created and/or collected by Jack Jaynes throughout his life, including his military and civil career. The Jack Jaynes Papers are housed in thirteen manuscript boxes and two non-standard boxes of various sizes totaling 7.72 linear ft.

After the initial accessioning procedures, the collection was partially processed and materials were separated and housed in different locations and record groups within the Special Collections and Archives Division. Well into the arranging process, the initially processed materials were found and incorporated in the processing plan. Due to these circumstances and the way the materials were handled by Jaynes, the archival concept of original order could not be reestablished.

The processing archivist imposed order and arranged the collection in eight series. The first series is the Personal Papers Series, which is further organized into three subseries: 1. Autobiography, 2. Correspondence, and 3. Social Activities/Topics.

Subseries 1. consists of biographical sketches, correspondence pertaining to Jaynes’ manuscript Eagles Must Fly, the manuscript itself and documents compiled by him and arranged in index form, which relate to his military and civil career.

Subseries 2. consists largely of office correspondence that Jaynes assembled and considered personal and range from 1920-1978. Private correspondence was organized in letters sent and received. Significant are the letters from Denis J. Mulligan, Director for Bureau of Aeronautics ranging from 1960-1982 and from C. R. Smith, Director of American Airlines from 1934-1980. Further topics are letters of Honors and Appreciation, letters sent to and received from U.S. Presidents and Congressmen, his retirement, and letters from The University of Texas at Dallas pertaining to his collection.

Subseries 3. mirrors Jaynes’ private life and engagement in various social activities. Materials include correspondence, clippings, newsletters, by-laws, and minutes from various associations.

The second series is the Military Career Series, which is organized in three subseries: 1. Records and Orders, 2. Air Transport Command, and 3. Air Corps Reserve.

Subseries 1. contains loose military documents and papers that were not included in the autobiographical index by Jaynes. They are arranged chronologically. His flight records can be found here in addition to his medical records, reflecting Jaynes’ endeavors to be reinstated into active duty in World War II.

Subseries 2. deals with his deployment in the Air Transport Command both state side and overseas. Materials include memoranda, correspondence, bulletins, directories, ephemera, as well as information regarding long-range bomber aircraft including charts and engine and flight performance.

Subseries 3. reflects Jaynes’ position as commander of the 446th Bomb Group (Very Heavy) at Carswell Air Force Base in Fort Worth, and its establishment and organization. Materials are correspondence, reports, memoranda, notes, orders, regulations, rosters, and schedules.

The third and most important series is the Civil Career Series, which is organized in four subseries: 1. Wright Auto Company, 2. Department of Commerce, 3. Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA), and 4. Federal Aeronautics Administration (FAA).

Subseries 1. contains one item, a certificate stating Jaynes’ employment with the Wright Auto Company.

Subseries 2. reflects Jaynes’ work as an airline inspector for the Aeronautics Branch as well as the Bureau of Air Commerce. Materials are correspondence, ephemera, examination tests for pilots and mechanics, hearings, inspection reports for airlines and pilots, laws, memoranda, orders, records, rosters, schedules, regulations, procedures, and organization of the Aeronautics Branch and the Bureau of Air Commerce.

Subseries 3. deals with Jaynes as Chief Airline Inspector and the organization of the CAA. Materials are office correspondence and reading files, certifications, directories, memoranda, documents, foreign trip reports and travel orders, ephemera, reports, the history and organization of the CAA, and the Atlanta Regional Airspace and Fort Worth Regional Airspace Subcommittee reports, which were chaired by Jaynes.

Subseries 4. covers his retirement from the FAA and Dr. Fred D. Fagg’s Jr. Meritorious Service Award. Materials are correspondence, directories, and documents.

The fourth series is the Photograph Series, which reflects Jaynes’ life and work in pictures. Main categories are: aerial photos, aircraft, album, family photographs, individuals, Jack Jaynes, various topics, postcards, Strategic Air Command, and unidentified. Of particular interest are the photographs of Jaynes’ early flying and military career and the large size photographs of individuals, notably of C. R. Smith, American Airlines, and especially image 5JBJ-12-4-PB34, which is a signed photograph from General J. H. Doolittle. Other topics are Taliaferro Field, later known as Hicks Field and Mollie's Tit, aircraft crash sites, aerial stunts, formation flights, take-off, landing, and other maneuvers. The albums depict aircraft, aerial photographs, Jaynes and other individuals, locations, airfields and clippings, and individuals having received a pilot's license. Other individuals are friends, colleagues, and other people who played a major role in Jaynes’ life such as C. R. Smith, President of American Airlines, Tom Braniff, and Jimmy Doolittle.

Biographical Sketch

According to official government records, John “Jack“ Belmont Jaynes was born on March 20, 1897 in Detroit, Michigan. Contrary to these official records, Jaynes, in his autobiography, Eagles Must Fly, as well as in a brief biography statement written by him, states that he was born on that date near the city of Linden in Cass County in east Texas as the last of fourteen children to Thomas Anderson Y. Jaynes and Marauda Josephine Kay Jaynes.

Jaynes’ father was a Civil War veteran, who moved the family after the war to east Texas, where most of the Jaynes children were born. After Jaynes Sr. passed away in 1901, the family moved to Fort Worth, Texas in 1903. Jack Jaynes was married to Ms. Lucille Bransford with whom he had one son, J. B. Jaynes, Jr. The couple divorced in 1920. Later in life, Jaynes married Ms. Kathryn Kinkle.

After attending various public schools and high-schools, Jaynes, with financial support of family and friends, attended the Brantley-Draughon Business College in Fort Worth from 1914 until 1916. Upon graduation, Jaynes found employment with The Wright Auto Company, a Ford car dealership in Fort Worth.

Jack Jaynes discovered his interest in flying while observing Canadian pilots at various training airfields around Fort Worth. From October 1917 until May 1918, he attended the School of Military Aeronautics at The University of Texas at Austin. He received his primary flight training at Ellington Field, Texas, in a Curtiss JN-4 (Jenny).

Having finished his flight training, Jaynes was commissioned as a second lieutenant. He obtained his artillery observation as well as direction and coordination of artillery fire training at Langley Field, Virginia. He received his advanced combat gunnery training at Taliaferro Field in Fort Worth, Texas from May 1918 until the Armistice on November 11, 1918. Upon leaving active service, Jaynes opted for a Reserve Commission in January 1919, in which he remained until mandatory retirement in 1957 at the age of sixty.

After World War I, Jaynes worked again for The Wright Auto Company as its representative until the company went bankrupt in the twenties due to the Depression. He received an Aviation Certificate from the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale, with which he examined flight tests for prospective applicants to the club. In 1920, Jaynes was asked to participate in a flying exhibition in Cuba with his friends and other stunt pilots.

In the early twenties, Jaynes was personally engaged in the establishment of a reserve contingent in Fort Worth, where he, with the aid of the City of Fort Worth and Mayor E. R. Cockrell, selected a site, which later became known as Meacham Field. His function was that of a flight instructor. At the beginning of 1929, Jaynes was approached by the Department of Commerce, Aeronautics Branch to work for them as a Flight Inspector.

During 1929, Jaynes reported to the Department of Commerce, where he also met with the Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Aeronautics, William P. MacCracken and George Gardner, the Chief of Inspection Branch. After having successfully completed the mandatory examination, he took up his assignment in Atlanta, Georgia as General Inspector, responsible for the southeastern states. His duties comprised of the examination and rating of airlines engaged in domestic and foreign air commerce. He evaluated whether the airline possessed suitable and airworthy aircraft in operation, qualified pilots, certified mechanics, proper two-way radio communication equipment, weather service, and sufficient emergency fields along the route.

Two years later, Jaynes was assigned to the Airline Inspection Division. In 1934, the Aeronautics Branch of the Department of Commerce was renamed the Bureau of Air Commerce. In 1937, Jack Jaynes was promoted to Chief Airline Inspector in Washington, D.C., where he was responsible not only for airlines inspection, but also for inspecting general aviation, engineering, manufactures of aircraft, engines, propellers, communication facilities, maintenance, training, and aviation medicine. Most importantly, in conjunction with Dr. Fred D. Fagg Jr., Director Bureau of Air Commerce, and others, he participated in drafting the original Civil Air Regulations.

From 1938 until 1939, Jack Jaynes worked as Director of Aviation Safety Division. During this time, the Bureau of Air Commerce was reorganized into the Civil Aeronautics Authority out of which the Roosevelt Administration created two agencies, the Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) and the Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB), in 1940.

In the first half of 1939, Jaynes was actively involved in the testing of a newly developed instrument landing system at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston. In summer of the same year, Jaynes returned to Fort Worth as an inspector holding the title as Superintendent of Aviation Safety, a duty, which he preferred over the administration assignment in Washington, D.C.

In the beginning of 1941, Jaynes conducted a preliminary study for a new route from Laredo, Texas to Mexico City, which later was granted to American Airlines by the CAB. In spring of 1941, Jaynes was assigned to serve on a technical committee and special mission through Central and South America, and especially in Lima, Peru, the home office of Panagra, Western Division of Pan American Airways.

In May 1942, C. R. Smith, the president of American Airlines and now Colonel in the Army Air Corps, solicited Jaynes to work for the Air Transport Command (ATC). Jaynes was released from his duties with the CAA and applied to be reinstated for active duty. After having recovered from a hernia surgery, Jaynes reported to the ATC in Washington, D.C. to the Deputy Commander, Colonel C. R. Smith, and was assigned to the office of Assistant Chief of Staff-Operations as an Operations Officer.

In 1945, Jaynes requested foreign duty, and was moved to the European Division of the ATC in London, England. Shortly thereafter, in April 1945, he went to Lisbon, Portugal, as an Operations Officer to inspect and acquire by purchase or lease the necessary property and facilities for a new operating base. About two month later, he became Commanding Officer and served until February 1946.

Jaynes, after having returned to the United States, resumed his reserve status and reported back to the Regional Office of CAA at Fort Worth as a Deputy Regional Administrator. At the same time, the War Department approached him to organize, re-activate, and command the 446th Bomb Group (Very Heavy) at Carswell Air Force Base in Fort Worth. He commanded this outfit until they were deployed to serve in the Korean War in 1951. Jaynes retired from the FAA as a Deputy Regional Administrator in the mid-1960s.

Jaynes was actively involved in various associations and voiced his opinion in numerous letters and petitions to the United States government and Congress. He wrote his autobiography Eagles Must Fly: A History of Aviation from Open Cockpits to Jets as Participated in by Jack B. Jaynes over the course of ten years, which was published as an author’s edition in 1982.

John “Jack” Belmont Jaynes died on Monday, November 17, 1986, in Fort Worth at the age of eighty-eight.
