Colonel George Williams Carrington was a United States Marine who served in China following World War II in 1946, and became the aide to Oscar Badger, the Commander of Naval Forces in the Far East. With a military career spanning from 1942 to 1968, he saw active duty during World War II, Korea, and Vietnam. He also spent time in Taiwan as an assistant naval attaché, and was the aide to General Maxwell Taylor, who was chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff during the Kennedy and Johnson administrations. In addition to his military career, Carrington also attended Yale, American University, and Oxford University, and has written multiple books on his life and on the history of foreigners in Taiwan (Formosa). The collection contains items mostly related to Carrington’s military career, including photographs, correspondence, newspaper and magazine clippings, and a NATO organizational chart. Also included is a program for the Chinese language course Carrington took at UC Berkeley and publicity materials for two books Carrington authored or edited.
