    Scope and Content of Collection

    World War II era photograph album of U.S. forces in the Pacific, ca. 1942-1945, containing 300+ photos, most black/white but some color prints and a few picture postcards, few with captions. Includes a number of shots of Naval personnel, bulldozers, and camps - apparently taken by a member of a Seabee unit. Also, a number of shots of local scenery and inhabitants, apparently New Guinea, New Hebrides (shown on French postcards), and Okinawa. The last part of the album has some miscellany, including clippings about Seabees on Okinawa, and a few pieces of Japanese paper currency and military currency.
