American military air force four-star general, aeronautical engineer, scientist, boxer, stunt pilot and Vice-president of Shell Oil Co.
He was the first to fly coast-to-coast in under 24 hours, the first to fly "blind," relying only on instruments, and he was the man to lead the carrier based attack on Tokyo on 4/18/1942. He and his raiders bombed five Japanese cities in broad daylight. Though damage was minimal, the attack was later immortalized in the movie "Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo."
A scrappy 5' 6", Doolittle taught cadets during WW I, then performed aerial stunts and set speed records as an Army test pilot, while earning a PhD. in aeronautical engineering from MIT.
He and his wife Josephine had two sons.
He died at his son's home in Pebble Beach, CA on 9/27/1993, a few weeks after a stroke.
