Quantity: 0.4 linear ft. (1 archives box and 1 oversized folder) of papers and 0.8 linear ft. (2 archives boxes and 1 oversized folder) of photographs.
Call Number: WVM Mss 947
Abstract: Papers and photographs of Harvey Klafke, who served in the United States Army as part of the American Graves Registration Command (A.G.R.C.) immediately following World War II. Materials relating to graves registration include printed instructions, with a diagram, for transporting remains; blank interment report forms; typed statements taken from German civilians describing their memories of American pilots and soldiers who were captured or killed near their villages; and a list of remains that were identified during “processing,” often by identification tags, personal effects, or physical descriptions. Military papers, including orders, provide some logistical details about his service in Europe. The “I am a doughboy” booklet, in which Klafke wrote numerous notes, describes the Infantry Replacement Training Center that trained soldiers toward the end of the war. Among the souvenirs he collected is a “hugs and kisses” ration book and numerous postcards from Europe. There are also several items belonging to Klafke's brother, Alvin, who served in the Navy during World War II. Photographs include pictures of row upon row of grave markers at American Cemeteries at Brookwood and Cambridge, England; St. Avold (Lorraine), France; and Hamm, Luxembourg. Pictures taken at the Orkney Islands in Scotland show the retrieval and transportation of several flag-draped coffins containing the remains of American soldiers. Other photos show the cathedral in Strasbourg, France, a group of German prisoners of war who worked for the A.G.R.C. in that city, and two group shots of the headquarters, 3rd Field Command of the A.G.R.C. while stationed at Strasbourg. A photo from Cambridge, England shows Dwight D. Eisenhower and Bernard Montgomery in academic dress to receive honorary degrees while another picture shows the grave marker of George S. Patton. There are several photographs from Klafke's basic training at Camp Blanding, Florida and some pictures of Klafke's relatives who served in the military during World War II, including his brother Alvin, cousin Richard, and uncle Raymond.
