American Library Association - O through R - The fighting Chaplain. The best booster a library ever had. We supplied books for a branch at his office: he takes his tray on a stormy night and goes from tent to tent: "Want a box boy?" During the whole winter he never failed to leave books on a call. As high as sixty books placed this way one evening. This is Chplain Blackman of the 130th F.A., one of the crack boxers of the 35th Div., and on eo fhte most successful chaplains in the Army. He says his book truck is largely responsbile for his acquantance with the men of his regiment. Camp Doniphan

U.S. National Archives

The objects in this collection are from The U.S. National Archives. The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) was established in 1934 by President Franklin Roosevelt. NARA keeps those Federal records that are judged to have continuing value—about 2 to 5 percent of those generated in any given year. There are approximately 10 billion pages of textual records; 12 million maps, charts, and architectural and engineering drawings; 25 million still photographs and graphics; 24 million aerial photographs; 300,000 reels of motion picture film; 400,000 video and sound recordings; and 133 terabytes of electronic data. All of these materials are preserved because they are important to the workings of Government, have long-term research worth, or provide information of value to citizens.

Disclaimer: A work of the U.S. National Archives is "a work prepared by an officer or employee" of the federal government "as part of that person's official duties." In general, under section 105 of the Copyright Act, such works are not entitled to domestic copyright protection under U.S. law and are therefore in the public domain.
