Scope and Content Note
Strott gathered this collection
of papers during his service with the 6th Regiment of the U.S. Marine Corps
at Quantico, Virginia in 1917, on the Western Front in 1918, and as part of
the German occupation force in 1919. The papers are primarily composed of copies
of general orders and official memoranda that were issued and distributed to
the American Expeditionary Forces on the Western Front during 1918 and 1919.
There are also a few documents that deal with various medical subjects of concern
to the 6th Regiment's Regimental Surgeon. Among the three personal letters are
two in German. The third is a 1920 letter of appreciation from Brigadier General
Harry Lee. A small group of memorabilia, including newspaper clippings, programs
for Independence Day and the anniversary of the Battle of the Aisne-Chateau
Thierry Sector, leave passes, and form "letters home" issued during the war
is present as well.
This collection should be cited as Papers of George G. Strott, Operational Archives Branch, Naval Historical Center, Washington, D.C.
