Historic Vienna was saddened to hear that Oakton VA resident, Robert F. Dorr passed away on June 12, 2016.  Bob starting writing in 1955, was an Air Force veteran (1957-60) and a retired American diplomat (1964-89). He has authored more than 70 books and thousands of magazine articles about aviation, the Air Force, and military history.  His writings are superb and will be a lasting legacy of his contribution towards documenting the history of aviation.

Bob was a loyal supporter of Historic Vienna and we were fortunate to have him speak at the Vienna town Hall on several occasions.  Bob donated many books to Historic Vienna which we have been selling at our store.
