GENERAL JOHN R. DAILEY, USMC (Ret.), and WIFE MIMI

“I hope to inspire future generations by making the legacy of the Wright brothers accessible to them. The thousands of artifacts at both the flagship building on the National Mall and the new Udvar-Hazy Center show the history, science, and technology of flight in dynamic, meaningful ways.”

To celebrate the Centennial of Flight, the National Air and Space Museum opened its companion facility, the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center on December 15, 2003. For Museum Director John R. "Jack" Dailey, the opening of this facility is the culmination of a dream and of many years of effort.

Dailey, a highly decorated pilot and a leader in the Marine Corps, at NASA, and now at the National Air and Space Museum, is leading the expansion of the most visited museum in the world. To commemorate the opening of the Udvar-Hazy Center and the Centennial of Flight, Dailey and his wife Mimi have made the National Air and Space Museum a beneficiary of their will, making them members of the Smithsonian Legacy Society.

Other service[edit]

He is National Commander of the Marine Corps Aviation Association, a member of the Early and Pioneer Naval Aviators Association ("Golden Eagles") and a number of other national and international organizations and boards. [5]
