28th December 1965

Dear Glen A. Knabenshue,

Congradulations and Best Wishes on your father being enshrined in the Aviation Hall of Fame.

Great men such as your father who pioneered aviation will never be forgotten.

As I have been in the Aircraft field since 1942 and plan to exhibit and lecture on men and women who made aviation history in the near future, I would greatly appreciate a picture of your father and his airship.  

Thank you and want to wish you and yours a Happy New Year

Respectfully yours,

Arthur O. Shackman
