Title : World War II inductee photographs, 1942-1945.
Physical Description : .25 linear ft.
Summary :

The collection contains formal and informal photographs of young men from Washington County, Vermont, being enlisted in military service in Montpelier, Vermont, 1942-1945. There are also four photographs of the selective service board, known as Local Board No. 1, at work in their office.

Most of the photographs show young men in civilian dress standing in front of the Washington County Court House in Montpelier, Vermont, in groups. However, the collection also includes informal photographs of the men getting ready to have their picture taken, photographs of men walking from the court house to the train station in Montpelier, and photographs of inductees getting on a bus in front of the court house. There is one photograph of an inductee and his family.

Typewritten lists of inductees found in the collection have been matched to the photographs in the collection. The lists of names are not necessarily arranged in the same order as the men in the photographs, so it is not possible to match the photograph of an individual with a name.

Related Collections : Additional photographs of the World War II era are located in the VHS picture file, F-HIS-World War II. The VHS also owns a collection of World War II recruiting photographs assembled by Sgt. Francis E. Abbey (FB-84). The Aldrich Public Library in Barre, Vermont, has the papers of Col Fred S. Kent, chief of medical division of the Selective Service during World War II.
