According to Chris O’Malley of The Indianapolis Business Journal, the Indianapolis Airport Authority decided that road leading into the airport will be called Col. H. Weir Cook Memorial Drive, and the main terminal will be called H. Weir Cook Terminal.

Harvey Weir Cook (1892-1943), born in Wilkinson, Ind., was a pilot who flew warplanes in World War I, and died in action in the Pacific Theater of World War II.
