Guy Reed Branch collection

Document | Accession Number: 2012.498.1

Consists of a photograph album containing images of life at the prisoner of war camp in Laon, France, which the American military used to house German POWs after the war. Includes photographs of performances, housing, and groups of prisoners. The album was compiled, described, and given by an unknown POW to Guy Branch, a member of the American occupying forces who staffed the camp. The POW may have been Hans Scheffler; the collection also contains a letter with his prisoner number which matches the prisoner number and photograph on the interior of the album. Also includes loose duplicate photographs, a letter from Hans Scheffler, and a mimeographed news bulletin distributed to soldiers.
