Biographical Sketch

Ernest Robert Swanson was born April 13, 1905 in Ogema, Wisconsin, to Swan August Swanson and Anna Walborg Hoffner. Swanson entered the military service at the Vancouver Barracks, Washington in 1924 and attended West Point Preparatory School at Fort Dupont, Delaware in 1925. In 1927 after graduating from West Point S. was stationed at the Jefferson Barracks, Missouri. During his time there he attended Washington University in St. Louis where he generated the first topographic map ever of the Jefferson Barracks and military reservation. The map was later incorporated in the US Geological Survey quadrangle map of that area and the project marked the beginning of Swanson’s interest in the potentials of aerial photo mapping.

Swanson’s career as a civil and military engineer include surveying and mapping of Oak Grove Hydroelectric Power Project with the Portland Railway Light and Power Company, Portland, Oregon (1922-24); railroad location surveys with the St. Louis - San Francisco and Texas Railroad in the Texas Panhandle and St. Louis headquarters (1929-31); topographic mapping and engineering studies with the St. Louis District Corps of Engineers, U.S. Army (1931-1940), in connection with maintenance and control of inland waterways for navigation, sanitation, and flood control projects. In 1937, Swanson designed and patented the “Aerosterograph,” a stereo plotting photographic instrument.

After having been an advocate for a comprehensive and coordinated world mapping program before W.W.II, Swanson was called to active duty on October 16, 1940 as 1st Lieutenant in the Office Chief of the Air Corps in Washington DC and placed in charge of air corps map and aeronautical chart requirements. As first Commander of the Air force Aeronautical Chart Service, Swanson was faced with United States entering a global war and a world virtually unmapped. Swanson developed the basic structure and design for several series of the Air Force Aeronautical Charts of global coverage and arranged with other Federal and Commercial Mapping Agencies of other Nations, including exchange of data between the British and Canadian Governments. Under Swanson’s direction the organization grew from a one-person unit into the Map Section of the Intelligence Division and eventually emerged as the AAA Aeronautical Chart Service and the Aeronautical Chart Plant in St. Louis, Missouri was also established. The latter served the United States Air Force with around the world up-to-date geographical information, airport logistics, radio facility, and other technical aid needed during air operations.

Other military assignments during W.W.II II include Construction Control Officer; Air Technical Service Commander, Write - Patterson Field, Ohio; and Air Installation Officer, San Bernardino. S. was active in commercial mapping as President of Continental Aerial Surveys, Inc., St. Louis, and was registered a professional engineer in the State of Missouri in 1948.

From 1957 until retiring in 1965, Swanson served in a civilian capacity at the Aeronautical Chart and Information Center. He was engaged in performing plant-wide studies on specific projects concerning new cartographic and photographic materials, techniques, systems, and equipment to better accomplish the mission of the ACIC. The efforts during this period resulted in a series of new equipment used for cartographic and photographic instruments. S. was rewarded Air Force recognition for the following devices: the Autoratiograph, Autocartograph, Rotoverser, Electromat, and Scanomat.

After retiring S. and his wife Lillian Werdle Swanson devoted much of their time to genealogy and went on several “Genealogical Safaris” through Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland, and Germany, searching the archives and visiting newly discovered relatives.

Col. Ernest R. Swanson and Lillian Werdle (3rd wife) were married October 9, 1947.

Lillian Werndle Swanson was born March 18, 1908 in East St. Louis, Missouri to William Martin Werndle and Minnie Lola Cross. Lillian Werndle received her A.B. from Washington University in St. Louis in 1941 and a M.S. in Zoology in 1943 also from Washington University.

Werndle was active as a professional violinist in the St. Louis Philharmonic Orchestra from1931 to1941. She taught anatomy, physiology, chemistry and microbiology at Lindenwood College, 1943-1951; held a position as a research assistant at Washington University School of Medicine 1951-1952; taught at the Washington University School of Nursing, 1952-1955; and at the Lutheran Hospital School of Nursing 1955-

Lillian Werndle Swanson died March 17, 1992.
