William Bouldin III

via email from Fritz Blaicher, 9-2-06
     He was my grandfather, he and my grandmother were divorced, so I met him only a few times. I know he was a retired Navy pilot, lighter than air.
     He was stationed in California in the 20's.
     Family lore says he was involved in a crash at Lakehurst NAS at the end of a cross country flight. I have emailed LNAS for any info they may have.

     Greetings to the following new members elected July 10, 1930. Among them you will find some long-lost bird who is still in the ring and going strong.
     William Bouldin, 3d, 169 Prospect St., East Orange, N. J., a broker with C. C. Kerr & Co., 111 Broadway, New York. VIntage 1912
