By: Deborah J. Larsen and Lt. Col. Louis J. Nigro


Named to honor the memory of Lt. Thomas E. Selfridge, the first fatality of powered flight, Selfridge Field has recorded many aviation milestones since its founding in 1917. As home of the famed First Pursuit Group, the airfield saw the feats of such notables as Charles Lindbergh, Jimmy Doolittle, and Curtis LeMay. Scores of young aviators who passed through Selfridge\'s gates later acheived the rank of general officer, earning the base the nickname \"Home of the Generals.\" Selfridge Field illustrates the history of the base, with many images drawn from the collections of Selfridge Military Air Museum and Mount Clemens Public Library.
