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.
Vintage photos of:
My Dad, Gordon Hamilton Clevenger. I'm not sure where the photo was taken, but he was born and raised in Mokena, Illinois in 1923. He served a tour in the Army before joining the Air Force and serving in the Korean Conflict (looked like a war to him) and retiring as a Master Sergeant in 1965. He passed away in Columbus, Ohio, in 2002.
