Charles Dolan

Lafayette Escadrille

Charles Dolan began his military service by enlisting in the French Foreign Legion, then transferring to the Lafayette Escadrille during World War I, and eventually transferring to the U.S. Army Air Service. He was the last surviving member of the Escadrille. He remained active in military and civilian aviation until his death in 1981.

Beginning in 1997, The Friends helped acquire the Dolan Collection from Dolan’s son and daughter-in-law.
