Collection Description

Scope and Content Note

World War II miscellany is an artificially created collection that contains items pertaining to World War II (1939-1945) from 1931 to 2006. The collection includes correspondence, interviews, printed material, published works, maps, photographs, writings, and memorabilia. A significant portion of the collection consists of a series of oral history interviews conducted by Floyd Watkins of his fellow soldiers who participated in the Aleutian Campaign, off the coast of Alaska in the Pacific Ocean, in 1943-1944. Another large portion of the collection consists of the writings and photographs of Lennis L. Jackson, who served in the Pacific as a war correspondent for the U.S. Navy's weekly, Seabee. The collection includes drafts of his stories written in 1944-1945. Other writings in this collection include diaries, memoirs and reminiscences that recount various soldiers' experiences in World War II. Also of particular interest in this collection are photographs taken by John M. Schreeder, while serving in North Africa, Italy, France, Germany and Austria. The images depict daily life as a soldier, as well as weapons, equipment and aircraft used during the war. The printed material includes newspapers and pamphlets printed during the war, as well as a small portion of pre-war German material, including broadsides, handbills, and newspaper clippings.
