A look back at Robins Air Force Base in the 1950s

Last summer while working in the archives at the Museum of Aviation, I ran across an old scrapbook from the 1950s. In the scrapbook were 36 articles from the Macon News that ran from April 10, 1955, through July 22, 1955. The series was about Robins Air Force Base and specifically the Warner Robins Air Materiel Area, now called the Warner Robins Air Logistics Complex, and numerous divisions of the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center.
