John B. "Jack" Marshall papers

 Collection — Box: 1
Identifier: 2011_009-UA

The Marshall Papers consist largely of photographs he presumably took from his departure for Europe until he left the battle zone. The photographs were found in two photo albums and in an unsorted group. Marshall identified many of the photos of frontline scenes, military equipment, soldiers and events in a decorative script. The manuscript material includes military directives and commendations (in both French and English), some personal writings, undated clippings, a map of rural France, a published 1918 Flag Presentation Brochure and a one page chronicle of the unit's service.
