expand icon Abstract
Raymond Marshall was an African-American US Army Air Corps Corporal who served in World War II, before military service branches in the US were desegregated. Marshall was assigned to an Air Base Security Battalion unit comprised of black enlisted men under the command of a white officer. He served in the Pacific Theater, spending time in Hawaii and on other islands, including Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa, among others. The Corporal Raymond Marshall Collection documents Marshall's experiences in the war, and consists of a single diary Marshall used from 1942-1945, including several pieces of ephemera and clippings he tucked between the pages.
