Abstract: The World War II Soldier Photograph Album documents the non-combat life of an unidentified soldier. Most images feature fellow soldiers and include handwritten notes on the front and back of some of the photos. The photo album includes snapshots of nurses, men eating and drinking in dining halls, soldiers' living quarters, an outdoor performance space, and more. The photo album also included a loose newspaper clipping titled "Eddie M. Norton of Milstead reports the following address" with a photo. The photo album was photocopied in its original state and then disassembled. Some photographs had already fallen out of the photo album upon its arrival and were not able to be photographed in their original locations.
