He was the son of Frank Gifford Tallman, Jr. (1894 1952) and Inez Evelyn Foster (1894 1982).... As a teenager he took flying lessons and became a pilot. When World War II started, Tallman tried to enter the military as a pilot, but his application was declined due to his lack of the required two years of college. He worked for a time as a civilian pilot instructor and later in the war was able to join the U. S. Navy when they relaxed their education requirements. Tallman remained stateside until the end of the war.". Very Good in Very Good+ dust jacket .
