Tuskegee post office honors pilot instructor

By Jay Bigalke

An April 16 postmark from Tuskegee, Ala., celebrates C. Alfred “Chief” Anderson.

Tuskegee airman and flight instructor C. Alfred “Chief” Anderson (1907-96) was honored with a United States 70¢ stamp issued March 13.

Nearly a month later, the Tuskegee, Ala., post office celebrated Anderson and the new stamp with a pictorial postmark and a dedication event at the Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site.

Anderson served in the 1940s at the Tuskegee Institute with the role of expanding its pilot training program.

To obtain this cancellation, which has received a 30-day extension, send requests to:

C. ALFRED “CHIEF” ANDERSON Station, 401 Elm St., Tuskegee, AL 36083-9998, April 16.
