Aviation author slated for lecture

The author who helped General James Doolittle compose his autobiography and is frequent visitor of the UTD special collections department will present the 2004 George W. Jalonick III and Dorothy Cockrell Jalonick Memorial Distinguished Lecture July 10.

Award-winning aviation author Colonel C. V. Glines will present the lecture “General James H. ‘Jimmy’ Doolittle: His Life Story,” to honor Doolittle’s many accomplishments and bravery during the famous B-25 raid on Tokyo after the bombing at Pearl Harbor.

Glines, who frequents UTD’s Special Collections Department every Tuesday to organize thousands of old aviation photographs and documents, is the author of 35 books and is a retired U.S. Air Force pilot.

“We are just as fortunate to have C. V. Glines working with us on a consistent basis and for agreeing to make the Jalonick presentation for 2004,” said Erik D. Carlson, special collections department coordinator.

The lecture will take place at 4 p.m. in the McDermott Library Auditorium and is free and open to the public.
