    Biographical / Historical

    The cover letter that accompanied this collection stated that 2nd Lt. Harold J. Glickman was killed by German bombers, a story remembered by the donor's wife told by the donor's mother. This is inaccurate as 2nd Lt. Glickman and the 9th General Hospital were deployed to the South Pacific for the duration of their existence during the war. The 9th General Hospital was a unit formed in New York out of doctors and nurses from New York medical institutions and Cornell University Medical that trained outside of Boston and was deployed to Australia, then islands near Papua New Guinea. It is unknown with which branch of the military this the 9th General Hospital belonged. The unit was disbanded in 1945. 2nd Lt. Glickman was killed on December 22, 1943.
