War Years Acquisitions Endowment

The War Years Acquisitions Endowment has been firmly established as a result of the sale of property donated by Mr. and Mrs. James A. Robinson of Virginia in combination with a gift from the family in memory of Harold D. Breazeale, Sr.

The fund accepts memorials for and materials from individuals who served in World War II. One such gift came from Mr. Hugh Wilson of West Columbia. From his personal collection, Wilson donated Desert Rat Sketch, written and illustrated by Clifford Saber, as well as a two-volume edition of The West Point Atlas of American Wars, edited by Brigadier General Vincent J. Esposito.

Funds generated by the War Years Acquisitions Endowment will be used to acquire and preserve materials relating to all aspects of World War II. For further information about the fund, please contact us.
