WWII Japanese photo album

May 14, 2010

During WWII it was common for Japanese soldiers to carry photo albums. Such an album was found on New Guinea in 1942/43 by a cousin’s husband of Alice’s mother. April, 2010 NPR had an interview of a lady who had such an album and was looking for a relative of the man who had the album when he was in the army during WWII. I wrote to the blog and was answered by a Japanese grad student at Denver University. In a couple of weeks he located a daughter of one of the soldiers whose picture was in the album. I sent the album to her. I have not heard back from her.
