Abstract

The files of one of the early "Key Men" or organizers for the ALPA. Correspondence, notes, and bulletins document Mr. Stephan's activities in the Cincinnati, Ohio, area. Among the correspondents is David Behncke.

History

Lionel Stephan worked as one of the organizers of the Airline Pilots Association (A.L.P.A.). When Glenn T. Fields, "Key Man" on the Cincinnati end of the Embry Riddle Lines, was transferred to Memphis, the A.L.P.A. was left without a representative. Stephan took up where Fields left off working to establish an Executive Council and an organization which the airlines accepted as the representative of the pilots. Contained in the collection are notes and bulletins which show the establishment of the A.L.P.A.
