Scope and Contents
This series contains 432 black and white photographs from the Second World War and Korean War collected by LtCol. T.H. Pritchett,
USA. Of those photos, 190 were kept in a scrapbook, 80 in a loose stack, 110 in a package mailed to LtCol. Pritchett, 51 taped
together in two collages and a graduation panorama.
The scrapbook photographs display various landscapes and buildings in Germany, Pritchett and his friends, horses, equipment
and tanks during the Second World War. The photographs have been removed from the scrapbook for preservation purposes; photos
of the original order have been added.
The loose stack contains photographs from the Second World War and Korean War which include tanks, Pritchett, beaches, Korean
children, Japan, some photos from the home front, Christmas, and cars including several of a 1949 Cadillac convertible.
The mailed photographs came from Sergeant C.M. Woodstock, United States Army in Neosho, Missouri in July 1951, and they are
numbered X1-X110 with an inventory list. These include photographs from Inchon, Suwon, Seoul, Pusan, Pungsan, Kapsan, Pukchong,
Hungnam, Toksongdong, Yongju, Chechong, Pyongchang, Hadachwa, and Changnam in Korea. They show tanks, downed planes, soldiers,
beaches, jeeps, refugees, Bob Hope, and General Douglas MacArthur.
The two collages consist of Nazi propaganda photo postcards and are numbered, with some in the series missing though they
were taped together in order of what was included. The first group consists of 30 photographs showing a Nazi rally and parade
in the streets of Trier, Germany and Nazi labor and Motor Corps units saluting a man in standing in a car as a processional.
The man appears to be Gustav Simon, the Gauleiter of Trier.
The other collage consists of 21 photographs showing a rally of the Motor Corps at Adolf Huhnlein Stadium, with shots of Huhnlein
inspecting troops. Both collages show images of children and youth participating in the rallies.
The panorama is a graduation photo for Pritchett from Basic Hospital Administration and Supply Course #1, Medical Field Service
School at Brooke Army Medical Center, Fort Sam Houston, Texas. It is dated July 12, 1952. A certificate of this graduation
is included in Series 4, Medals and awards.
