Koontz’s original research at the airport during 2005 resulted in a listing on the National Register of Historic Places. Naval Aviator, Rear Admiral Ernest Eugene “Gene” Tissot, Jr. (USN Ret.), shared personal memoires and family photographs from his childhood years living at the airport and near Boulder Dam (now Hoover Dam). These stories and most of the photographs have never before been published.
