Edgar Lewis Bolden

Not Forgotten: A Tuskegee Airman, POW, and FAA Employee 

Edgar Lewis Bolden was a father of ten, one of the original Tuskegee Airmen, an aerospace engineer, and a long-term FAA employee. Bolden died in Portland, Oregon in 2007 at the age of 85. Few, however, know of his accomplishments. Not one to brag or live on his past accomplishments or focus on past discrimination, Bolden focused on the here and now, on making his part of the world a better place.
