About this Collection

World War II ClippingsWorld War II Newspaper Clippings

This collection contains a compilation of local news article extracts pertaining to WWII personnel from the pages of the Bethlehem Globe-Times.

Due to the age and condition of the original articles, some dates were illegible and were thus omitted from the article. For a few articles, the last numeral of the year was missing and a zero was added. Time permitting, additional articles will be added.
