Biographical / Historical
Eventually Pilling was posted in London and assigned to public relations work, mainly to establish a collegial relationship between British and American service people. He organized dinner-discussion groups in London with prominent British speakers and was a member of the organizing committee for the British and American Forces Dining Club. Leaving London, he was posted to Washington where he did publicity work for the Bureau of Ships public relations section.
Pilling returned to civilian life and resumed his personal writings. Government, history, politics, and social issues were favorite subjects. For a time, he concentrated on the construction of a house in Maine where he summered with his wife, Muriel L. Pilling. Their primary residence was in Waynesboro, PA. Mrs. Pilling compiled and had privately printed many of her husband's essays and observations.
Frank N. Pilling and Muriel L. Pilling are deceased.
