The Lee C. Schlegel World War II Collection documents the experiences of United States Army soldier, Lee Cyrus Schegel, whose enlistment period spanned the first three years of United States involvement in World War II. The collection consists of approximately two-hundred photographic prints, a scrapbook, two diaries, and a small amount of personal papers.
Lee Cyrus Schlegel was born on May 26, 1919 in Reading, Berks County, Pennsylvania to parents, Theodore Machmer and Anna Bertha (née Luckenbill) Schlegel. Following high school, Schlegel was employed as a structural and ornamental metal worker. He married Dorothy E. Moyer on September 10, 1941, and less than two weeks later, enlisted in the United States Army at New Cumberland, Pennsylvania.
