Collection Summary

Dr. Emmerich von Haam, Jr. (1905 - 1988), a renowned pathologist, collected the films while serving in the First Regiment of the U.S. Army during World War II. The films highlight important world events, including those relating to Nazi aggression in Europe. Each newsreel offers a comprehensive yearly report of war activities from the American perspective. The films are very valuable since they are of very good quality. Five reels of 16mm film (38 minutes)
