Staff from A&E Networks’ HISTORY stopped by the Library this week to donate interviews from some of our nation’s oldest World War II veterans — specifically those who witnessed the attack on Pearl Harbor. On the eve of the attack’s anniversary, these stories offer meaningful testimony to the American entry into World War II.
These 25 A&E oral history recordings will complement more than 250 VHP Pearl Harbor collections.
There are many evocative manuscripts and recordings among these collections, including Leon Jenkins’ diary. He witnessed the Attack on Pearl Harbor and although his diary begins in 1942, its pages are nothing less than evocative.
