Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Archive, primarily photographs, chronicling the U.S. Navy career of Barbara Williams, much of what was spent stationed at Pearl Harbor. Materials include a typescript first-hand account of the attack on Pearl Harbor, an album of photographs depicting the attack of December 7, 1941, an album of photographs portraying Pearl Harbor in 1954, an Operation VIP Welcome Program from 1954, four signed photos of prominent Navy personnel (including Admiral Felix B. Stump), two additional albums of photographs portraying the career and places visited by Williams, and more.
Captain Barbara M. Williams served in the U.S. Navy and was stationed at Pearl Harbor in the 1940s and 1950s. She was evidently from California, as one signed photograph sent to her reads "Best regards to my fellow Californian Capt. Barbara M. Williams."
