I am trying to determine the parents of Archie William League, born 1907 in Poplar Bluff, Missouri. Archie League had a distinguished career, having moved to St. Louis and is widely acknowledged as the "first air traffic controller."
He served in World War II as a pilot, and served in the Federal Aviation Administration as an Assistant Administrator.
He was in St. Louis during 1926-1930, had a brother Claude W. League, and probably his Mother, Mrs. Snow League.
I suspect he is a descendant of a William T. League, who was an attorney in Poplar Bluff in the late 1880s.
If anyone in Butler County knows of this lineage, I would appreciate learning, and am willing to share what information that I have about this family.
