New Acquisitions

As we are nearing the end of the year, we just received a few new items.

Misc. WWII photos.

First is a collection of 250+ photos taken in 1944-1946, in what appears to the be the Battle of Leyte and the occupation of the Philippines in the Second World War. The first set of photos are combat related and have some graphic images. The remainder are an interesting examination of the early days of the occupation. There are a number of questions that will need to be worked out, such as trying to identify the photographer, and copyright status.

Gilberte Laplace WWI letters

Second is a batch of letters written by Gilberte Laplace, a young French refugee during the First Wold War, to her benefactress, Mattie Dial Hughes, a local woman.
