On Labor Day weekend 1935, the most intense hurricane ever to strike the U.S. took aim on their flimsy shacks, and the two men responsible for evacuating the veterans from harm’s way waited too long.
After coming upon a monument erected in the Florida Keys to honor the victims of the Labor Day hurricane of 1935, he knew this was a story he had to tell.

 American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics - IAS Early Years
Lester Gardner (1876-1956) produced the journal Aviation and Aeronautical Engineering in 1916, which was later sold to McGraw Hill and became Aviation Week and Space Technology.
Although the IAS was headquartered in New York, there was a concern that much of the development of aviation was shifting to the West Coast, far from headquarters.
Gardner felt it was vital to prepare a bibliography of some kind, and he approached the New York City Department of Plants and Structures for Aviation, suggesting that such a project could be done by unemployed engineers and aeronautical professionals.

 =X=(_)=X= Futuramic, Streamlined Aircraft Receives Design Patent
During American aviation's rough-and-tumble "golden age" over a half century ago, it was not uncommon to seek such protection covering an aircraft's form, instead of from a utility patent protecting a process or mechanism.
It touches on the murky underbelly of pioneering aviation: company-internal skullduggery, bureaucratic intransigence, plain bad luck and perhaps a whiff of government/industry collusion.
America's penchant for underdogs and the validity of the question notwithstanding, suing the government in on the eve of wartime might be deemed unpatriotic.
