The photographs in this collection were removed from a series of albums containing awards,
diplomatic documents, and photographs presented to Dwight D. Eisenhower during his military
and Presidential career. Most of the photographs are undated, but the majority date from World
War II period. President Eisenhower gave the albums to his son, John S. D. Eisenhower who
later donated them to the Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Library.
Because of the size and condition of the original album, researchers will be provided with a
facsimile of the albums. The page numbers and arrangement of the albums has been noted on the
facsimile. While each photo has been assigned an individual number, the pages are numbered
with the original album and page numbers. Photos that were stored between pages have been
noted on the facsimile; accession numbers correspond with their location within the album.
Photographs were transferred to the Audiovisual Collection from Manuscripts in March 2006;
processing of the photographs was completed in June 2010.
