Lois Logan Horn, WWII Military Records

 Collection — Box: 001
Identifier: MS-0031

Scope and Contents

The Horn papers comprise interview transcripts, correspondence, photographs, military publications, and newspaper articles. The majority of the material is photocopies, with a few original letters, publications, and photographs from World War II that were gathered by Horn during the interview process. The majority of interviews took place in 1993 and 1994, with some taking place earlier. Lois Logan Horn acquired the material after she documented her own memories and interviewed her husband and her brother about their experiences during World War II. Her work expanded when family members and friends also wanted to talk about their own memories. The interviews provide a view of the impact of the war on the United States. Many of those who are represented in the collection served for the United States armed services, including service in the Pacific Theater and in the WAVES. The memoires detail imprisonment in the Phillippines, the Bataan Death March, the war efforts in the United States, and experiences in different branches of the military. Others detail pre-war experiences in Washington, D.C., China, Hungary, Italy, and Japan, along with views of a conscientious objector, those forced into relocation camps, and those in the war industry.
