Abstract:

General description of the collection: The George W. Putnam, Jr., papers consist of material relating to the U.S. Army Tactical Mobility Requirements Board (the Howze Board) on which Putnam served in 1962. There are sixty letters to Lieutenant General Hamilton H. Howze (who served as president of the Board) and to Lieutenant General Charles H. Bonesteel III, responding to requests for ideas, information, and input on future requirements for Army aviation. Correspondents are listed in the finding aid. The Howze Board recommended changes in the Army's aviation program and force structure based on air assault divisions and air cavalry combat brigades equipped with armed helicopters, fixed-wing fire support, and other aircraft. Also present is a Combat Developments Command historical monograph, "THE ORIGINS, DELIBERATIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE U.S. ARMY TACTICAL MOBILITY BOARD (Howze Board)", April 1969; and a Rand Corporation report, "THE 1962 HOWZE BOARD AND ARMY COMBAT DEVELOPMENTS", by J.A. Stockfisch, 1994. A folder of materials relating to the 1971 to 1979 Department of the Army study considering the creation of an Army Aviation Branch or Basic Entry Specialty in Aviation (Canedy-Sweet Study Group). These materials include Putnam's comments to members of the task forcces and study groups, and a copy of the Army Chief of Staff's 13 April 1979 message on Commissioned Aviator Career Management.
