Claude P. Foster
Former Member, CWPT Board of Directors
Claude Foster is a United States Air Force veteran having served two years in Vietnam. For 27 years, he was employed by Electronic Data Systems (EDS), a Dallas-based computer services corporation, rising in the ranks to Division Vice President. Mr. Foster professes a lifelong strong personal interest in military history, spanning World War I, World War II, the French Revolution and particularly the Napoleonic Wars, but it was Ken Burns' Civil War series on PBS that sparked his interest in the Civil War. Upon retirement, Mr. Foster and his wife relocated from Dallas, Texas to Charlottesville, Virginia, a move motivated by his passion for the Civil War and battlefield preservation.
