Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Sherman E. Brazil Photograph Collection contains images taken by Brazil during his time as a China Marine in the 1930s. Before his death he passed these photographs to his friend Hugh B. Carnes, Jr. Carnes made duplicates of the photographs as part of a book project. The images often include scenery, people, and brutal images of war destruction.
Sherman E. Brazil was born in Tennessee in 1914 and served in the U.S. Marine Corps. He enlisted in 1937 at Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego and served as a Private in Shanghai and Beijing (Peking). He returned to the U.S. in 1940 and was at Mare Island Naval Hospital in Vallejo, California. Brazil passed away in 1998.
