Literary Rights Statement

Permission to publish material from this collection in any form, current or future, must be obtained from the Special Collections Department, Eugene McDermott Library, The University of Texas at Dallas.

Provenance Statement

The Charles N. Haus Papers were donated to the History of Aviation Collection, Special Collections Department, Eugene McDermott Library, The University of Texas at Dallas, by Charles N. Haus in multiple accessions from 1984 through 2010.

Note to the Researcher

The collection arrived in good condition in multiple accessions. No original order could be found so order was imposed and organized into nine series. Negatives were sleeved in archival sleeves; pictures were separated with archival paper. Paper clips and staples were removed and replaced with coated paper clips where necessary. Three-ring notebooks were discarded and all manuals and employee information booklets were placed in file folders in the approriate series. The newspaper clippings in Series IX. were more fragile due to their age and fold marks, so please handle with care. The four oversize boxes contain the pilot directory, pictures, negatives, and employee newsletters.

Material Removed List

0.4 linear feet of marketing posters, office forms, bumper stickers, duplicate history, and empty notebooks were removed from the collection and recycled.

Biographical Sketch

Charles N. Haus was born on December 1, 1921 in Turner, Kansas to Mr. and Mrs. Alvin Haus. He learned to fly in 1938, and after graduating from high school a year later, he attended two years of engineering school at the University of Kansas. In August of 1941 he enlisted as an aviation cadet with the U.S. Navy. Once training was completed, he joined the Atlantic Fleet as a patrol plane pilot, flying the Martin (Glenn L.) PBM Mariner and the Consolidated B-24 Liberator in South America, England, and Africa. He returned to inactive duty as a Commander in November 1945.

Haus flew with Trans World Airlines (TWA) until 1947 when he began flying with Mid-Continent Airlines (MCA), joining Braniff Airways (BNF) when they merged with Mid-Continent Airlines in 1952. Haus was given Braniff ID #36680 and listed as number 282 in pilot seniority out of 435 pilots from both companies.

On Dec. 1, 1981 Haus retired from Braniff after 34 years (29 with BNF and 5 with MCA). In the BISE-Braniff International Silver Eagles Newsletter #46 dated March, 1982, Haus is pictured along with eleven Braniff pilots who had retired within the months surrounding his retirement date.

Haus, who logged about 30,000 hours in his years of flying and had ushered in the jet age after years flying piston aircraft, was now seeing another major change among the airlines: the effects of the Airline Deregulation Act of 1978 and the changes it brought to the airlines in the new environment. He had flown the Douglas DC-3, DC-4, DC-6, DC-7C, DC-8, Lockheed Electra L-188, Convair 240-340-440, Boeing 707-227, 707-720, 727 and the Boeing 747.

Five and a half months after Haus turned 60, the age at which Federal Law grounds commercial pilots, Braniff declared bankruptcy and closed.

As for Haus, he worked as a simulator instructor for Dalfort, Flight Safety, and Boeing, all in the Dallas area, and retired again in November 2007. He still lives in the Dallas area.

Scope and Content

This collection contains documents and records, manuals and reports, photographs and negatives, clippings and articles, handbooks and newsletters, ephemera and memorabilia, and other materials that were collected by Charles N. Haus during his flying career with Braniff Airways, as well as his training and instructor years after he reached the Federal mandatory retirement age of 60. The Charles N. Haus Papers are housed in four manuscript boxes and four oversize boxes of various sizes totaling 6.9 linear feet.

The collection arrived in good condition in several accessions. As the processor organized the collection, nine series were identified.

The first series is the Personal Information series which includes a March 10, 2012 personal letter from Charles N. Haus, summarizing his flying career. The file also includes an "Alteon" business card, showing "Captain Charles N. (Charlie) Haus" as a "Training Center Evaluator" at the DFW Center.

There is a missing box of personal papers which may include additional information.

The second series is the History series and is organized into five subseries: 1. Braniff Airways, 2. Mid-Continent (MCA), Book Draft-Braniff History, 4. Braniff Crashes, and 5. Bankruptcy.

Subseries 1. includes lists of dates and events throughout Braniff's history, beginning in June of 1928 with the first Braniff scheduled passenger flight from Oklahoma City to Tulsa in the Stinson Detroiter. This subseries includes a narrative called "Braniff's Genealogy" and also a booklet printed by the "American Newcomen" group in 1955 to honor Thomas Braniff at a dinner in New York. This booklet includes the verbatim speech given that night by Charles Beard, long-time friend, co-worker, and successor to Thomas E. Braniff. Mr. Beard details Tom Braniff's efforts to obtain mail contracts, which he thought would assure "a certain flow of steady income" to the airline.

Subseries 2. includes a narrative history of Mid-Continent Airlines and Panagra Airlines. Mid-Continent Airlines began as Tri-State Airlines, Inc. in 1928, first as a flying school, then adding charter flights. In August of 1938 the name was changed to Mid-Continent Airlines to better reflect the territories served by the airline. During World War II, the airline was very active flying cargo, training pilots and mechanics, and modifying military aircraft. At the time of the merger with Braniff in 1952, Mid-Continent had 1100 employees, served 35 cities, and had made a profit every year since 1942.

Panagra Airlines began on the west coast of South America in September of 1928, "when a tiny single-engine Fairchild monoplane with four passengers and a few letters took off from a racetrack in Lima and landed in a soccer field in Talara, Peru." An American crop duster pilot and World War I veteran, Harold Harris, obtained the backing of Pan American Airways and W.R. Grace & Company to form the Peruvian Airways Corporation with one million dollars in capital, half from each of the two companies.

Subseries 3. is a book draft on Braniff history. Along with this typed draft is "Braniff's Geneology" which is a two-page schematic of several name changes and acquisitions, including four name changes for Braniff; the acquisition of Long & Harmon Airlines on January 1, 1935; Bowen Air Lines acquired 1935-36; Aerovias Braniff Subsidiary in Mexico, 1943-46; Mid-Continent Airlines Merged into Braniff August 16, 1952; Braniff Airways, Inc. DBA Braniff International Airways 1946-1965; and Pan-American-Grace Airways (PANAGRA) acquired on February 1, 1967. A hand-written note included with the book draft states: "This is the make up of a book to be published by Braniff. Sort of a Braniff Yearbook History."

Subseries 4. Braniff Crashes, is a two-page list entitled: "List of Braniff Crashes Including Predecessor & Merged Companies." The list begins with a Lockheed crash at Chicago's Midway Airport on July 12, 1931 and ends with a Lockheed crash in Dawson, Texas on May 3, 1968.

Subseries 5. includes a document dated March 12, 1992 titled "United States Bankruptcy Court For The Middle District Of Florida Orlando Division" and states Braniff, Inc. as the Debtor, Chapter 11, Case No. 89-3325-BKC-6C1.

The third series is the Images series which is further organized into three subseries: 1. Negatives, 2. Positives, and 3. Pilot Directory.

Subseries 1. includes nine sheets of negatives of airplanes, pilots in the cockpit and in the office, overnights in Buenos Aires and Bolivia, ramp activities, altitude pictures, and hostess pictures.

Subseries 2. includes five Concorde pictures. The third Concorde picture shows a Ford Tri-Motor parked on the ramp next to the British Airways Concorde. Concorde pictures four and five show Braniff markings, each plane different, one picture in color, the second in black and white.

Subseries 3. is a paste-up of all active-duty pilots, ready for printing and includes pictures and hometowns. Charles N. Haus, pictured on page 218, states "Turner, Kansas. Undated." This is one of two identified pictures of Haus in the collection. (The other picture is in Series IV. on the front page of the March 1982 retiree newsletter.)

The fourth series is the Braniff Employees series which is further organized into ten categories, but no subseries, all relating to benefit information. The group insurance booklets for active and retired employees include 1969-1980. The Letters to Employees range from 1952-1959. The B-Liner employee newsletters date from 1975-1979.

The BISE Braniff International Silver Eagles Newsletter is from March 1982 with Charles N. Haus on the front page, holding his retiree award. A short biography is included on each retiring pilot.

The Employee's Handbook for the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport describes gates and conference rooms. Parts 1 (1936) and 2 (1981-1982) of Operations Personnel include employee listings. Flight Passes describes reduced rate travel available to employees, dated 1976.

This series also includes Pilot BId Assignments, Pilot Pay Records, and Travel Expense Reports.

The fifth series is the Collective Bargaining Agreements series which is further organized into five subseries: 1. Pilots-Braniff, 2. Pilots-Panagra, 3. Dispatchers, 4. Steward and Stewardess Contract Memo, and 5. Reorganization Agreement.

Subseries 1., 2., and 3. are booklets. Subseries 4. is a contract memo dated 1973. Subseries 5. is a letter of agreement between Braniff and the pilots, dated July 20, 1983.

The sixth series is the Arbitration Memos series which is further organized into two subseries: 1. Seniority List, and 2. Arbitration Decisions.

Subseries 1. includes seniority lists for Mid-Continent pilots (1941), Panagra (1954), Braniff (1954), and an Integrated Seniority List Award in Arbitration (October 14, 1952).

Subseries 2. includes the award of arbitration, dissenting opinion, finding of the executive committe of the Air Line Pilots Association, grievance by pilots against Braniff, and the interpretation of the Board of Arbitration. On the backside of the Air Line Pilots Association memo of June 25, 1952 (Subject: A History of Labor Protective Conditions For Air Line Pilots) are a few handwritten pay calculations comparing pilot pay for three aircraft, day and night hours.

Of special note in this section is the Arbitration decision handed down in October of 1952, determining the seniority status of the pilots of both MCA and BNF now that they were one company. That arbitration memo and several others are included in this collection. This is a small but significant piece of the collection, as pilot seniority determines the type of equipment flown, days off, routes eligible to fly, pay, and the order they choose all of these items.

The seventh series is the Pilot Training & Operations Manuals series which is further organized into eight subseries: 1. Boeing Manuals, 2. Braniff Fleet Checklist, 3. Operations Manual, 4. Training Manuals, 5. Weight Manifest, 6. Pilot Uniforms, 7. Hostess Manual, 8. FAA Correspondence, and 9. Military Extension Courses.

Subseries 1. includes the 737-200 training and operations manuals as well as the Flight Management Computer for the 737.

Subseries 2. includes the Lockheed Vega and 737 checklists, various blank flight forms, and Jeppesen Charts for DFW, Memphis, and Washington National.

Subseries 3. contains the DC-8 Manual and Checklist and the B-727 Training Manual.

Subseries 4. includes listings of Instructors, Check Pilots, Check Engineers, Ground School Instructors, Simulator Personnel, and Management Personnel.

Subseries 5. includes the operational weight and balance manual as well as a dead reckoning navigation manual.

Subseries 6. includes the 1973 pilot uniform handbook.

Subseries 7. includes the 1965-1967 Emergency Section of the Hostess Manual.

Subseries 8. includes Part 1 and Part 2 pilot FAA authorization and proficiency checks correspondence from 1958-1987.

Subseries 9. includes Military Extension Courses and personal notes.

The eighth series is the Publications series which includes one issue of Air Transport World and three issues of Fighter Aircraft.

The ninth series is Ephemera which is further organized into seven subseries: 1. Advertisements/Menus/Schedule, 2. Annual Reports, 3. Inflight Magazines, 4. Publications, 5. HDQ Correspondence sheets, 6. Enroute Info Miami-South, and 7. News Articles.

Subseries 1. includes print advertising examples, inflight menus, and a 1975-1976 flight schedule.

Subseries 2. includes Annual Reports for 1975, 1986, and 1987.

Subseries 3. includes five seatback pocket monthly magazines for customers (called Flying Colors) for 1970-1989.
