Item #58

10.375" x 13.375" photo album with 91 photos on 20 brightly colored pages. The first page has a photo of a man and says "My adventure in the west which is something I do not wish to trust to my memory...William Bennett Douglass." He went by the name Ben, and this album documents his time from February, 1944 - August 1945, as he moved to Washington State to work for the Navy during World War II. His wife and two sons followed him there shortly thereafter, and they lived in government housing in Orchard Heights. He shows the interiors and exteriors of this housing, along with the note that it was $40 per month. Each of the photos is identified and show places close to where they lived and trips to Hood Canal, Mt. Ranier, Olympic National Forest, Lusk, Wyoming, etc. In the back there is a two page list of "ships that have been in Puget Sound Navy Yard (and) Ships that I have worked on underlined." Written on one of the last pages is "It's been a book of knowledge, this northwest adventure. I have learned a trade and have gained a broader vision of the war. I have no complaints or gripes, but give thanks to my God for what he has given me and allowing me to keep our little family together. The end." A wonderful record of an eventful time in his life.
