Dear Mr. Johnson,
Thank you for posting your inquiry on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog for records on Kelly Field for the 1910-1919 time period and located 19 series, 29 file units, and 1 item in the Records of the Army Air Forces (Record Group 18) that might be of interest to you. Please note that some of the records have been digitized and may be viewed online using the Catalog. For access to the non-digitized records, please contact the unit listed in the description.
Please note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from various NARA units. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
