|Title||The Dolson Portrait|
|Collection||Charles H. Dolson Collection|
|Description||Framed oil painting. Portrait of former Delta Chairman and CEO Charles H. Dolson seated in chair with his elbows on chair arms and hands clasped in front of him.|
This painting was a gift to Charles Dolson from active and retired Delta pilots, who commissioned the painting in commemoration of Delta's 50th anniversary of passenger service. The painting was presented to Dolson at the Delta Golden Wings Club (retired pilots) banquet on June 16, 1979.
At the dedication ceremony, several pilots described how Dolson had advanced from pilot, to head of operations, to the CEO office, "maintaining a keen understanding of the pilot's role and needs as the airline industry progressed."
