The 95th Bomb Group Memorials Foundation takes great pleasure in announcing historian Donald L. Miller, PhD, as the keynote speaker at the October 8th 2016 re-dedication of the 95th’s Memorial Room at the 390th Memorial Museum. Dr. Miller will address a joint 95th and 390th reunion audience at the 390th’s museum, located at the Pima Air & Space Museum in Tucson, AZ.
A New York Times bestselling author, Donald Miller is widely known for his works on World War II, especially Masters of the Air: America’s Bomber Boys Who Fought the Air War Against Nazi Germany (New York: Simon and Schuster, 2007). In Masters of the Air, Miller draws from interviews, oral histories, and other archives to tell the definitive account of the young men of the US Army Air Forces and their aerial campaign against Hitler’s Fortress Europe from bases in England. Miller carefully reconstructs life in wartime England as well as in the German prison camps where tens of thousands of Air Corps POWs spent part of the war. HBO is currently developing a miniseries based upon Masters of the Air, produced by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks.
Dr. Miller is the John Henry MacCracken Professor of History at Lafayette College in Pennsylvania. He ranks as one of the most respected authorities on World War II and US history with teaching and research interested in modern United States social history and urban history; Civil War and slavery; and war and modern memory. Miller is the recipient of numerous awards and has given many keynote presentations. In addition, he is a frequent consultant and adviser to historical productions for such respected organisations as PBS and HBO.
Both the 95th Bomb Group Memorials Foundation and the 390th Memorial Museum Foundation eagerly look forward to Dr. Miller’s keynote address in October.
