Fort Riley (Kan.) -- History -- Photographs
Found in 4 records:
A collection of photographs from the family of Bessie Wilson. Includes two photographs of the 9th Cavalry band, a photograph of a father and his two daughters with the label "Wilson Family," a photograph of five African American men, and a large group photograph in front of the Mount Carmel Missionary Baptist Church.
Photographs of Fort Riley, Kan. and other locations during World War II and the years directly following. The photographs appear to have been taken mostly by a sergeant who trained at Fort Riley and was later sent overseas to serve in Europe and Japan. Several photographs show a three-vehicle wreck in a roadside ditch 33 kilometers from Landshut, Germany, potentially as part of "Exercise Normal," a large scale war maneuvers training event in the fall of 1948.
This collection contains portraits of Wilson and Gigax family members, photographs of various businesses in Abilene, and the Tremont Hotel in Coffeyville, Kansas. There is also a photo album which contains photographs of scenes in Dickinson and Geary counties around 1917-1920, which includes scenes at Camp Funston during World War I.
