Theodore Maculay was a student at the Curtiss Aviation School and was an employee and member of the U.S. Army Signal Corps. As flight instructor, Macaulay regularly submitted names and validations for students to receive certification from the Aero Club of America.
Col. Theodore C. Macaulay USAF (Ret.) (September 30, 1897 – April 20, 1965) was born in Minnesota and educated in New York. His parents were Henry F. and Susan Tomlinson Ayers Macaulay. At the Curtiss Aviation School at North Island, Macaulay leaned to fly in the latter part of 1912, making him an Early Bird (an airman who flew before 1916). In 1913, he was named manager and chief instructor of the Curtis Aviation School at North Island. He earned his Expert Aviator’s License (Number 19) Thanksgiving Day, 1913. Shortly after setting an American altitude record in 1914, Macaulay transferred to the Curtiss factory at Hammondsport, NY. The intent was for him to accompany a shipment of Curtiss H-7 TB flying boats to Russia.
