Series VII: U.S. Army Air Forces, 1941-1947

During World War II, Lorentz directed the Overseas Technical Unit, which was detailed to gather footage to help American pilots spot landmarks and airstrips around the world. This series has maps, correspondence, journals, and photographs. It also contains scripts from several of the briefing films that were produced as guides for different routes. Large format Air Corps photos depict Africa, Iran, Arabia, India, Morocco, Egypt, Libya, Iceland, Labrador, England, and Scotland. Others are in France or unidentified.
