Arthur Müller (1871 - 1935)

Arthur Müller (1871–1935) was a building contractor involved in creating Germany’s first airfield for engine-powered planes in Berlin-Johannisthal. As its operator, Müller helped to establish the site as the focal point of German aviation. Müller held the first International Aviation Exhibition (ILA) at Berlin-Johannisthal. In 1910, he commissioned the construction of a Parseval airship hangar. Because Arthur Müller was a Jew, his family was dispossessed and expelled. The Nazis concealed his contribution towards the development of aviation.
