Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.
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.
