Austin-Bergstrom keeps history alive
Austin-Bergstrom International Airport will not forget the past or its duty to honor those who have played a big part in Austin’s history. In addition to renovating the South Terminal in mid-century style, the award winning airport has honored the past in other ways.
The main terminal is the Barbara Jordan Terminal, named after the lawyer and civil rights leader who, between 1966 and 1972, served as the first black in the Texas Senate. The Houston native would go on, from 1972 to 1978, to become the first black woman from Texas to be elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. In her role as a member of the House Judiciary Committee, Jordan gave the opening speech during the impeachment hearings for Richard Nixon in 1974. Her speech was so impressive that she was invited, as the first black woman, to give the keynote speech at the 1976 Democratic National Convention. There is a statue of her on the first floor of the terminal. After having spent the last 25 years of her life wheelchair-chair bound from multiple sclerosis, Jordan died in 1996 at age 60.
John August Earl Bergstrom, for whom the airport is named, was the first Austin native to be killed in active duty during World War II. Capt. Bergstrom was 34 and an officer with the 19th Bombardment Group in the Philippines when he was killed in 1941.
Austin-Bergstrom International Airport is located on the site of the former Bergstrom Air Force base, which was named for the war hero in 1948. After the Air Force base was decommissioned in the early 1990s and the civil airport, Austin-Bergstrom, was built on its foundation, it kept his name.
The airport’s two runways are also named after famous Texans.
- The West Runway (17R/35L) was named after late President Lyndon Johnson by Austin City Council in 1999. Johnson often flew into and out of Austin-Bergstrom International to go to the Johnson City Ranch on which he was born, lived and died. It is about an hour west of Austin.
On its website, the airport said that prior to his visits, workers would paint green all the dead grass that was visible from the runway and Presidential Boulevard.
- The East Runway (17L/35R) is dedicated to another frequent-flyer politician, former U.S. Congressman James Jarrell “Jake” Pickle. He served as the representative from the 10th congressional district of Texas from 1963 to 1995. He made many flights back and forth to Austin – as many as two or three times a week -- in the 32 years he served in Washington, D.C. He died of cancer at his home in Austin in 2005. He was 91.
And, by the way
When Austin-Bergstrom International Airport opened in 1999 on the decommissioned Bergstrom Air Force Base, it replaced the Robert Mueller Municipal Airport, which had served as Austin’s main airport since 1930.
And, by the way, that Robert Mueller is not the same special counsel Robert Mueller who was assigned to investigate President Donald Trump’s ties to Russia.
The airport Robert Mueller was elected to Austin City Council in 1926 and died in 1927.
