The Lawrence A. Tritle Collection features artifacts, newspapers, magazines, military documents, and other assorted ephemera
from the World War II era.
Lawrence Tritle served as a professor of history at Loyola Marymount University from 1978 to 2017. A Vietnam War veteran,
Tritle studied war and violence, authoring several publications on the topic. In May of 2003, Dr. Tritle unveiled the World
War Studies Research Room in the history department. Informally called "The War Room," it contained donated material primarily
related to the two world wars. Many of these material make up the Lawrence A. Tritle Collection. Tritle's father, a World
War II aerial gunner, is the source of many items in the collection. Other materials come from fellow LMU professors, as well
as community members.
