- This card is part of a larger collection of World War II personnel clippings. The project began in 1944 at the Lindsay Library.

To that end, during the years 1944, 1945, and 1946, members of the public donated photographs and updated information about their loved ones. Both library staff and the public saved and donated newspaper clippings. Some of the files contain great amounts of detail, while others have just a name.
