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.
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.
