Historic Photographers of Vancouver Barracks

March 28 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Thursday, March 28 / 6:30 pm / Free

General Oliver Otis Howard House, 750 Anderson St., Vancouver, WA 98661

From the earliest days of the Vancouver Barracks, government-sponsored pictures and engravings were created, documenting the history of the installation. In addition to official images, private individuals took pictures of the daily life of soldiers and their families. Come learn about the work of military and civilian photographers, both identified and anonymous, including Laura Lee Otis and That Man Marcell, and see samples of their images. Many of the photographs have not previously been shared publicly.

Historian and archaeologist Major Jeff Davis, (U.S. Army, Retired), will present images from his extensive collection of vintage photographs of Vancouver Barracks, along with biographical information about the photographers. Images will include historic interiors of the Marshall House, street views in the Vancouver Barracks, and soldiers working and relaxing. Presented by the Vancouver Barracks Military Association. https://www.vbma.us/
