Genealogical and historical description:

Scrapbooks and loose news clippings of items relating to Delaware's involvement, or the participation by Delawareans in the World War II efforts at home or overseas.

Scope and Contents:

Clippings concern service records, honors or decorations received by, and death notices of, Delawareans serving in the military. Also included are articles documenting the wartime activities and events of businesses and organizations in the State as well as articles on the selective service, air raid procedures and precautions, and war time production. Loose clippings are attached to index cards. The index cards seem to be divided by those that are biographical and those that are topical. There probably was some original organization that was lost when all the materials were boxed. The records may have been used in the book Delaware's Role in World War II, 1940-1946, by Wm. H. Conner and Leon de Valinger, Jr. 1955. 2 volumes.
