In The Library: Photo Wall

By Don Allen

In the reading area of the 2nd Air Division Memorial Library there are comfy chairs and tables where you can sit and read a book or talk with friends. On the wall behind you stands a large wall plastered with a collage of photographs from World War II and the 2nd Air Division. The actual photographs can be found on our Digital Archives (, and I’ll leave most of them unidentified in this post so you can make a scavenger hunt game out of it if you’d like. However, I am going to post a few pictures of the wall here and identify some of the individual photos, one of a person which I’m sure most of you will recognize!
