B-36 origins

Can anyone tell me where to find the development history of the B-36? I have run into a wall trying to find the dates of the contract to Convair, the spec for the 1941 (or earlier) research and especially the funding.

This is the best I have found so far...

Any help appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Bruce

Looks to be the most comprehensive history available.
