James H. Doolittle Collection

James H. Doolittle was born in Alameda, California in 1896, and during World War II he gained distinction for leading the first carrier-based bomber attack on mainland Japan in 1942. For this work, he was awarded the Medal of Honor, which was presented to him personally by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. This digital collection is from the Eugene McDermott Library at the University of Texas at Dallas, and it offers glimpses into Doolittle's life through a small, yet focused, series of images. Visitors can view a high quality photograph of his Medal of Honor, and then look through some of the photos of Doolittle and his raid bom crew.
