This finding aid covers 8 mm, 16 mm, and 35 mm motion picture films.
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 Dwight D. Eisenhower’s interest in stereographic photography, the Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Library & Museum holds a large collection of stereo slides. The majority of the 1,154 slides were taken during the years 1948-1958 by Eisenhower and members of his staff using a Realist Stereo Camera made by the David White Company, Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
