History

The Bexar County Historical Survey Committee assumed sponsorship of the restoration of Brooks Field Hangar 9 of the old Army Air Corps Brooks Field. The restoration of the Hangar would be used to house an aviation museum. This museum was intended to display the early history of Brooks Field and to preserve and display an extensive collection of photographs and equipment related to aviation and aerospace medicine.[5] It became the Edward H. White II Museum of Aerospace Medicine.[2]

The museum was named after San Antonio native Ed White, an astronaut and the first American to "walk" in space.[6]

Historic registration

The Brooks Field Hangar 9 was accepted and listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1970 and became a National Historic Landmark in 1976. The State of Texas has designated this old Hangar 9 as a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark, and a City of San Antonio Historic Landmark.[2]
