About the Photos

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.

Stag Party: c.1920

Stag Party: c.1920

Northern Minnesota. Bernard Burch (1889-1985) poses second from left with unknown associates. This image was taken either immediately before or after Bernie went to France with the 53rd Infantry Regiment to battle the Hun with his snare drum. He left behind a lifetime of unannotated photos that reveal his two personalities: a somewhat gregarious pre-war youth versus a reserved and taciturn adult. C'est la guerre. View full size.
