Reade Tilley
WWII Ace, Berlin Airlift

Reade Tilley was a World War II fighter ace who flew with the Eagle Squadron of the Royal Air Force. He kept photos, flight logs, and diaries of his experiences. His collection includes these documents as well as others from his service as Public Affairs Officer for Gen. Curtis LeMay at Strategic Air Command.

The Friends arranged with Tilley to have his papers deposited in the Academy library, and after his death they financed the shipping of those papers from Maryland to the Academy.
