Yeager Named to California Hall of Fame
World War II fighter ace and Air Force test pilot Brigadier General (Ret) Chuck Yeager will be inducted into the California Hall of Fame in December.
The California Hall of Fame was created in 2006 by the Governor’s wife, Maria Shriver, and the California Museum. Its purpose is to
recognize legendary Californians who have influenced the state, the nation and the world.
Yeager’s fellow inductees are an eclectic group, including George Lucas, John Madden, and Harvey Milk. Prior inductees include Walt Disney, Amelia Earhart, and Ronald Reagan.
