  • Through the Camera's Eye: Collection of WWII photos

    These photographs tell individual stories of men and women who served our country during World War II. They portray the various theaters of conflict, scenes from camp life, the American home front, and war's destruction and its impact on individuals--civilians as well as soldiers. Captions for these unique photographs come from the original cutlines designated by the photographers and the ACME wire service.

    During World War II, James Allison, a sports writer working for the Houston Press, noticed that many photographs not printed in the daily newspaper were routinely discarded. He received permission to save these images, and by war's end he had amassed a collection of more than 4,600 photographs. In August 1977, Allison donated his collection to the Arkansas Museum of Science and History, located in the historic Arsenal building in MacArthur Park.
