The museum archive collection holds an unique scrapbook assembled by James. F. Doig about the Korean War (1951-1954). The scrapbook was put together after Doig's involvement with the United Nations Military Armistice Commission between July 1953 and June 1954. In 2006, the scrapbook was sent to the museum. The scrapbook includes period photographs, newspaper clippings, cards, tickets, photocopies of news articles, etc., and detailed captions for each image. The exact date when this manuscript was assembled is not know, but it has clearly been created between 1954 and 2006. This story features some of the most interesting and humanizing aspects Doig has captured with his collections of images, documents, and stories.
