Temple University in Philadelphia has received a donation of the archives of the Greater Philadelphia Chapter of the Tuskegee Airmen. There were 48 original members of the chapter. Only six are still alive.

The archives include photographs, memorabilia, and hundreds of pages of documents. The documents include letters, funeral programs, and minutes of chapter meetings.

The collection will be housed in the Charles L. Blockson Afro-American Collection in Sullivan Hall at Temple University.
