The Captain Forrest G. Houlehan Scrapbook contains photographs, postcards, newspaper clippings, typed letters and other ephemera that document Houlehan's life from World War I up until the beginning of World War II in 1941. Many materials in the scrapbook relate to Captain Houlehan's work between the wars at car dealerships and the Civilian Conservation Corps.
Captain Forrest G. Houlehan was born in Wisconsin in 1893 to dentist Dr. George Michael Houlehan and mother Matilda Klusmeyer of Lombard, Illinois. He served in World War I with Troop 1, a National Guard cavalry unit that became part of Battery E, 120th Field Artillery, 32nd Division. After the war Houlehan worked in car sales in the 1920s and 1930s, including as a branch manager of Lake Shore Motors, Inc. in Evanston, Illinois. During the New Deal he served as a Civilian Conservation Corps camp commander for the 3121st Company at Camp Sturgeon River in Waucedah, Michigan. He served in the military again in World War II, and died in 1975.
