Mrs. Carl A. Spaatz, interview, Washington, D.C., 25 March 1982. Though Air Service and Air Corps records use the single "a" from 1910 to 1937, the double "a" is used in this book from the beginning for clarity and to distinguish General Spaatz from his grandfather, Carl Spatz. In Germany, the family always spelled the name as "Spatz," and Gen. Carl Spaatz's grandfather and father retained that spelling through their lifetimes. During the late 1930s, the general's daughters and wife were annoyed with the tendency for the girls' playmates to pronounce the name "spats," which were the men's short ankle leggings still in use at the time. The family prevailed upon him to add an "a" to the spelling to induce others to pronounce the name as "spots" in order to end the embarrassment. (See p. 104) There seems to have been a branch of the family in Belgium that did use that spelling, but the general's family clearly had its origins in Germany, not Belgium.
