Pages of History: An air base on shores of Lake Earl?

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, August 1941.

A move initiated by the Crescent City chamber of commerce to interest federal authorities in the construction of an air base on Lake Earl has received the wholehearted cooperation of the people of Brookings.

The matter was made the principal subject of last Monday’s meeting of the chamber held at the Horseshoe Grill, with Brookings being represented by W. L. Crissey and A. F. Tilton.

The Brookings men were enthusiastic about the possibilities of the Lake Earl site and urged all possible action to bring the matter to the attention to the proper authorities. Mr. Crissey pointed out the importance of the base here in the defense program on the Pacific Coast, and also stated his opinion of the commercial aspects of aviation.
