The Founders

The Order of Daedalians honors, as its Founder Members, all World War I aviators who were commissioned as officers and rated as military pilots no later than the Armistice on November 11, 1918. Every current Daedalian carries as their member number an original Founder Number, thus linking those who fly to those who flew.

An ongoing historical research project is compiling biographical and historical information about all of the Founder members. This information will be made publicly available as it is developed. Until then, you can look up a Founder by their full name or Founder Number.
