Stanley L. Marcus World War II Collection

 Collection — Multiple Containers
Identifier: 2015-05-06
The Stanley L. Marcus World War II Collection contains over 150 World War II survey and aeronautical maps, collected by Stanley L. Marcus during his service as a pilot in World War II. It is unknown if he collected the maps or if they were given to him. Most of the maps cover various areas of Great Britain, but other locations within Europe are also represented (see Index). There are also four United States Army Air Force air navigation charts: London to Berlin (S-131), Athens to Cairo, Algiers to Tripoli (S-125), and Paris to Rome (S-132). Duplication occurs. Additional materials include a photographic portrait of Marcus and a watercolor painted by Marcus depicting Coulommiers, France.
