Lynn Homan and Thomas Reilly bring extensive experience in historical research, writing, and creative design to their work. An important facet of projects undertaken at Homan and Reilly Designs is the development of relationships with individuals featured as exhibition subjects. Insights gained through extensive personal interviews bring the subjects to life. More than 8,000 hours were involved in the production of the nationally acclaimed traveling exhibition, The Tuskegee Airmen. With over 25 years of experience in the aviation industry, Thomas Reilly has served as an aviation consultant and chief financial officer. A licensed pilot, he has flown both fixed-wing aircraft and hot air balloons. Reilly earned his M.B.A. from Northeastern University. Lynn Homan earned her B.A. in history from West Virginia University, and served as the administrative director of a Florida history museum in 1986. She has become involved in the production of museum exhibitions, serving variously as an editor, curator, and designer, and has provided photo-documentation of historic structures to the National Register of Historic Places. Both authors are active participants in the Florida Humanities Council's Speakers Bureau, and live in St. Petersburg, Florida.
