Major William J. Lodge served as a Statistical Officer in the VIII Fighter Command, 417th Night Fighter Squadron, of the U.S. Army Air Forces during World War II. After the war, he settled in the San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles and worked for many years as an investigator for the California Labor Commissioner's Office, Division of Labor Standards Enforcement. The William J. Lodge World War II Collection consists of aerial propaganda leaflets and newsletters dropped over Germany and occupied Europe during the last months of World War II. The majority of the propaganda documents are in Dutch or German, and are accompanied by an official English translation. There are 33 issues of The Flying Dutchman newsletter (No. 49-61, 63-82), dropped over the Netherlands from 1944 until the end of the war. The collection includes reports on the success of propaganda leaflet campaigns, four issues of Stars and Stripes newspaper for American troops, and material and photographs related to the VIII Fighter Command during WWII.
