Online Library of Selected Images -- Photo Albums

George H. Dunn's USS Cebu (ARG-6) Photo Album
(Naval History and Heritage Command Photographic Lot # S-585)
-- General Description

This collection contains photographic prints concerning the crew and activities of the Internal Combustion Repair Ship Cebu (ARG-6) circa 1944-1945. It was originally owned by George H. Dunn of East Liverpool, Ohio, who had been a member of Cebu's crew. Shortly before their purchase, the photographs were organized by the seller into an album format with 31 pages, containing 64 separate images. This organization was well executed and has been retained, although the photographs themselves have been rehoused in archival storage sleeves, since the album that came with them was of non-archival material of recent manufacture. Most of the prints are of 4" x 5" format, with a number of portraits of individual crew members in post card (about 3.5" x 5.4") and smaller (approximately 2.5" x 4") formats.

The album was purchased on EBay on 1 October 2008 by Charles R. Haberlein Jr., a friend of this organization who subsequently donated it to the Naval Historical Center (which was renamed Naval History and Heritage Command shortly before these pages were prepared). As of this writing, five of the collection's photographs have been further cataloged with "NH" numbers, and are featured in other "Online Library" subject presentations. All of these are also seen here, with links provided to their "NH" series Picture Data sheets.
