About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Officers' Wives Club: 1967

Officers' Wives Club: 1967

These ladies were members of the Fort Knox, Kentucky Officers' Wives Club. My mother, far right, was the only one whose husband was in the Marine Corps. The rest were the wives of Army officers. Their role then, as now, was much more than just bowling and having luncheons. View full size.

Camp Smith actually

My dad was at Camp Smith from late 1966 until late '68.

Camp Smith

Kaneohe is beautiful! Dad was stationed at Camp Smith, Hawaii, in 1970, after his second tour in Vietnam. I wonder if your friend who was a Ft. Know is who I am thinking of!

Kaneohe in '67
