The World War II scrapbooks were compiled by Mr. and Mrs. M. W. Cannon, Mr. and Mrs. George Lougee, and Miss Frances Barnette. The scrapbook compilers’s stated intent was to include photographs of all white servicemen and servicewomen from the Durham area beginning January 1, 1943 through the end of the war. The original clippings are organized in seven scrapbooks. An article on the project is located in volume 5, p. 5. The clippings are not dated.
The scrapbooks are available on microfilm at Main Library.
