In 1956, Coralie Hewitt Tillack began her 26-year employment with Lockheed Air Terminal in Burbank, California. Starting as a telephone switchboard operator and later transferring to Field Operations, Coralie was captivated by the history of the first million-dollar airport constructed in the United States, and gathered material to write a column for the company newspaper. Over the years, Coralie accumulated a large collection of newspaper clippings, magazines, books, and photographs, along with her notes from personal interviews with many of the airport's longtime employees. In 1982, she retired to write her own story of the airport, and her manuscript, Once Upon an Airport, was copyrighted in June 1987. The collection documents her work in writing that history.
