Scope and Content Note
Thomas Stroder assembled the contents
of this collection in a single scrapbook while serving on USS Cincinnati
during the later years of World War II. Stroder was an avid collector of memorabilia
during his tour of duty, and the collection reflects his interest in travel
and sightseeing. His official Navy papers are confined to induction, discharge,
training certificates, and a single document from the Bureau of Naval Personnel.
Other items include photos of unidentified shipmates and Caribbean area travel
spots, brochures, handbills, restaurant menus, and small packets of travel photos.
This collection should be cited as Papers of Thomas E. Stroder, Operational Archives Branch, Naval Historical Center, Washington, D.C.
