Abstract:

This compendium offers a broad sweep of some of the United States Air Forces most remarkable and memorable figures in the context of an evolving center for airpower education. Air University Pantheon of Air, Space, and Cyberspace Power Thinkers is an effort to identify the intellectual roots of Air University. By giving us a glimpse of the synergism of the exchange of progressive, nontraditional ideas among AU faculty and students, this pantheon helps us to realize how the application of these ideas have influenced airpower. In part because Air University serves as a forum for innovative thought and discussion, the United States continues to be the preeminent air, space, and cyberspace power. The dawn of todays Air University was with the Army Air Corps Tactical Schools ACTS move to Maxwell Field in early 1931. There the school served as a think tank for new ideas, including the development of airpower doctrine.
