Abstract:

The collection consists almost entirely of Blackford's letters home to his wife Lydia Blackford and children Staige and Linda. He desribes training in Pageland, S.C. and Ft. Benning, Ga., and the hospital in action in Casablanca, Morocco, and Italy.

With the letters are hospital newsletters, newsclippings, aerial propaganda sheets, Bill Mauldin cartoons, a postwar speech to the United Daughters of the Confederacy on civil rights for African-Americans, and an account of a Russian P.O.W. camp in Germany.

Of interest are descriptions of ethnic groups in North Africa, the political scene in North Africa and Italy, the medical problems of the people in North Africa and liberated areas, visits to the hospital by celebrities and politicians, meetings with mark Clark, George Patton, J. Rives Childs, Vincent Sheean, and T.J. Michie, attempts to treat shell shock with new drugs and numerous descriptions of routine life in the unit and places visited on leave or at medical conferences.

He expresses resentment over striking miners in the U.S., speculates on Europe after the war and encourages his wife's direction of the blood plasma bank in Charlottesville, Va.

Corespondents include Colgate W. Darden (on expanded hospital facilities for African-Americans), John P. Marquand, Robert D. Meade, and Edward R. Stettinius.
