Records of a medical unit, formed in 1940 by doctors at Charlotte Memorial Hospital (now Carolinas Medical Center) to support front line aid stations during World War II in North Africa and Italy. Contains official reports, a unit history, photographs, correspondence, and maps of encampments. LeGette Blythe used much of this material in his published history of the Unit, 38th Evac (1966), which is documented in this collection with manuscripts, galleys, and page proofs. An exhibit on the Unit in 1994 at the Museum of the New South in Charlotte generated additional material for this collection as well.

Biographical/Historical note

In 1940, Gen. George Marshall approved formation of the U.S. Army 38th Evacuation Hospital at the request of Charlotte doctors and nurses who desired to form a medical unit. Activated in March 1942, the Unit received military training at Fort Bragg. The Unit then went to England (August-October, 1942); North Africa (November, 1942-September, 1943); and Italy (through July, 1945). The 38th Evac supported front line aid stations and mobile surgical units, treated disease, and transferred patients to general hospitals. Deactivation occurred following the Unit's tour of duty in Italy. Features in Time and Life and wire service stories by Richard Tregaskis made the 38th Evac one of the best known units during the war. [Tregaskis underwent brain surgery in the Hospital in Italy.] A detailed history is found in 38th Evac.

Scope and Contents note

One of the things that resulted from this collection is a book, which used many of the photographs from this collection. Page numbers from book, The 38th Evac, are listed in brackets after the photographic entry. When this collection was originally processed, a large assortment of photographs was not processed with the original collection. These photographs (filling about one and a half document cases) were processed in 2006. Those that were a part of the second phase of processing begin with P4/310. The origins of these photos is only partially known, while others are uncertain and a few are unknown. It seems that a few of the personnel of the 38th Evac were avid photographers, and also enjoyed having their pictures taken. These include Captain Robert Miller, Captain John Montgomery, Lt. Martha Pegram-Mitchell, Major Staunton W. Pickens, and Sergeant William J. Pricskett. In addition, it seems that Major Pickens collected photographs from several others to compile his collection. Montgomery not only took pictures and had pictures taken of him, he also compiled several scrapbooks. Those photos had to be removed from their original pages for conservation reasons, and the order in which those photographs were arranged in the scrapbooks has been maintained in the arrangement in this collection, though the original order is not necessarily true to historical chronology. With a collection as voluminous as this, it was inevitable that some photos appear more than once, resulting in double-numbering. Beginning with P4/310 the photographs in this collection are arranged according to the source, and for the most part, their sub-arrangement is chronological. These photographs come from the following sources: Miller, Capt. Robert ; Montgomery, Capt. John ; Pegram-Mitchell, Lt. Martha ; Pickens, Maj. Staunton W. ; Ambrose, James ; Bauschspies, Rollin ; Berhe, Stanley C. ; Bourke-White, Margaret ; Cotton, Russell B. ; Davis, Randall ; Griswold, William ; Lewis, Charlotte, Jean Webber ; McCall ; McKeon ; Minovich, William ; Pisinski ; Pricskett, Serg. William J. ; Raino, William G. ; Scarry ; Schirmer, Robert H. ; Seeley, B. ; Smith, Edna ; Stahl, Robert G. ; Unknown origin
