The naming of the airport was based on the Lieutenant Edward O’Hare who was a navy flyier who gave his life when he was 29 years. His name is still in aviation by his monument which is the world’s busiest airport in chicago (Chicago’s O’Hare Airport History 2). He was awarded the congressional medal of honor in 1942. When World War II ended, Chicago was established as the busiest civil aviation operation, that time it was the city’s municipal airport, later to become Midway. In 1946, they bought Orchard Field from U.S. government together with 7,000 acres. Three years later, $2.4 million was to get more land orchard field was renamed O’Hare (1.)
The expansion went on and by 1962 all scheduled operations had been transferred from Midway to O’Hare. O’Hare preserved the tittle of the “Worlds buisiest” for over 30 years until it was overtaken by Atlanta in 1998 (3).
