INTRODUCTION

The Ned Harrison Collection consists of materials gathered from war veterans and civilians for a newspaper column commemorating the 50th anniversary of U.S. involvement during World War II. Harrison invited people to submit their recollections of events and experiences from 1943 to 1945 to be published in the Greensboro News & Record. His column ran from January 1993 to January 1996. Materials range from letters written by soldiers about their experiences and newspaper articles to project notes and maps. Researchers interested in many aspects of World War II will find this collection useful. Research areas include: the home front, Battle of the Bulge, the South Pacific and the war with Japan, dropping of the atom bomb, concentration camps, D-Day, V-J Day, the armed services and the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

Researchers may also want to consult tape recordings from The Ned Harrison Show, a call-in radio program in which Harrison interviewed veterans about their experiences. The show ran from October 1996 to March 1997. The collection is filed separately under GHM Tapes #30-53. (See Appendix for full listing)

Arrangement: The Ned Harrison Collection is organized by subject and arranged alphabetically by personal name. The series are: Ned Harrison Notes, General Letters, D-Day Experiences, Battle of the Bulge Experiences, South Pacific Experiences, and V-J Day Experiences.

Provenance: The collection was donated to the GHM by Ned Harrison in August 1997. The accession number is 1997.95.1.

Processing: Archivist Stephen Catlett processed the collection, and the finding aid was updated and completed in 2004 by Christine Dumoulin, Archives Assistant.


BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE

Ned Harrison was born on October 30, 1924, in Worchester, Massachusetts. He attended High School in Worcester, graduating in 1942. From April 1943 to October, 1945, Harrison served with the 15th Air Force, 454th Bomb Group, 304th Bomb Wing and flew 22 combat missions. During his service, he attained the rank of 1st Lieutenant and was awarded several commendations, including four Battle Stars, two Oak Leaf Clusters, and a Purple Heart.

Upon completing his military duty, Harrison worked in sales and marketing, retiring as the Vice President of Marketing for Jackson Corporation in New York. After his retirement, he attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to study military history. He then began teaching courses on World War II at Guilford College, Alamance Community College, and Guilford Technical Community College. As part of the approaching 50th anniversary, Harrison wrote a column for the Greensboro News & Record on World War II from 1993 to 1996. He invited local Guilford County vets and civilians to contact the News & Record with their wartime experiences. Harrison also had a weekly call-in radio program about World War II on WKEW in Greensboro from 1994 to 1997.

On a personal level, Harrison is married with three children, two grandchildren, and is a member of Temple Emanuel in Greensboro.

Biographical Sources: The biographical information was gathered from a copy of Ned Harrison’s résumé.


SCOPE & CONTENT NOTE

The materials in this collection consist of correspondence, project notes, newspaper clippings, maps, and copies of photographs. Most of the materials relate to the experiences of local Greensboro/Guilford County residents who participated in World War II as soldiers and civilians. The first series contains notes, drafts of articles, contact information, and correspondence that Harrison compiled as he worked on the project. There are also notes relating to D-Day, including an article titled “Scenes from the Battle of Normandy” (1:2), copies from a D-Day encyclopedia (1:1), and maps of the Ardennes, including notes from the Battle of the Bulge (1:4).

Series 2 consists of correspondence detailing wartime experiences relating to topics not covered in the other series, including women on the home front and German concentration camps. Jennie MacKenzie recalls the dropping of the atom bomb on Japan while her husband was in the South Pacific (2:127). As a soldier in Europe, Carlton Raper discusses the horror and sadness felt when they arrived to liberate the Jews in Dachau. (2:178). On V-E day, Louise Keever recalls hearing the news while working as a telephone operator for Hickory Telephone Company (2:108).

Series 3 contains letters, articles, and maps relating to D-Day and the American invasion of Normandy. A letter from Archie Coleman discusses the flying gliders that landed on the beaches of Normandy armed with anti-tank guns (3:8). There are also materials, such as newsletters, correspondence, announcements and letters, planning events in the United States and Europe to commemorate the landing at Normandy. Included was a scheduled re-enactment to take place in France (3:44). A particularly interesting account comes from a French High School girl in Bordeaux, who was riding the train when she heard of the invasion (3:24).

Series 4 recounts events and experiences during the Battle of the Bulge and contains correspondence, newsletters, and copies of newspaper articles. A letter submitted by Robert Manness describes the misery of fighting on the front lines and the emotional traumas soldiers were faced with (4:28). Veteran Robert Cook, a combat engineer attached with General Patton’s 3rd Army, recalls bombing raids while working to clear the roads (4:8). An article with maps details the Battle of Luxembourg (4:2)

The war fought in the South Pacific is chronicled in series 5. There are letters soldiers and civilians, copies of articles, maps, and newsletters. An article discusses the first amphibious assault on Japan called Operation Olympic (5:48) and a pilot describes when his plane was hit by a Kamikaze fighter (5:90). A particularly interesting article details the Japanese surrender at Ryukyus, including copies of the signed surrender documents and an account of all the events of the day (5:46)

Series 6, V-J Day, contains mostly letters and copies of newspaper articles discussing reactions towards the surrender of Japan and the end of World War II. Materials relate accounts from both veterans and civilians. Dermont Everhart tells of being with the first group of men who landed at Tokyo Bay. When they arrived, they saw “Killroy was Here” written on the sea wall; the paint was still running (6:12). A videotape of Ramsay Potts shares experiences with the 8th Air Force (6:46). A copy of the Air Daily from September 3, 1945, gives a brief account of the various ceremonies that were held commemorating V-J Day (6:4)

Also of interest is a series of recordings from The Ned Harrison Show, a weekly radio program where Harrison interviewed veterans and took listener calls. N.C. Representative John Cocklereece tells of his experiences with the Graves Registration Unit, who was responsible for gathering bodies and preparing them for burial (GHM Tape #34). There are also interviews with John Beamon, an expert in German Luftwaffe aircraft (GHM Tape #38) and Craig Kabatchnick, an attorney who specializes in veteran’s affairs and veteran’s rights (GHM Tape #52).


SERIES DESCRIPTIONS

1. Ned Harrison Notes. 5 folders (ca. 130 items). 1944-1994.

This series contains correspondence, notes, copies of articles (both drafts and published pieces), miscellaneous commemorative materials, and copies of World War II maps. All of these items pertain to Harrison’s Greensboro News & Record project in which he asked people to submit their personal accounts of experiences during World War II for a series of columns he was writing for the 50th anniversary of the war.

2. General Letters. 247 folders (ca. 500 items). 1993-1996.

The bulk of correspondence in this series pertains to the project mentioned in the first series. Many of these letters contain subject matter that relates to topics not covered in series 3 thru 6. In particular, home front experiences will provide material of interest to researchers. For a sampling of civilian experiences in Greensboro, see Miriam Caviness’s piece on working in a supply depot (2:32) or Diane G. Faucette’s brief history of the Y-Matrons Club at the YWCA in Greensboro (2:58).

3. D-Day Experiences. 49 folders (ca. 150 items). 1993-1995.

This series contains letters, copies of photographs, copies of newspaper articles, and a newsletter titled Beachhead (3:7). All correspondents wrote, in response to Ned Harrison’s request for material on D-Day experiences. The bulk of the letters are from soldiers. Interesting items include Ed Black’s description of his experiences aboard the U.S.S. Rich (3:3); Gerald Clough’s description of the action above the beaches that day (3:7); a letter from Al Corry recounting his experience as a bombardier (3:9); and John Thaxton describing the events of the day from the perspective of someone in the first assault wave (3:44).

4. Battle of the Bulge Experiences. 46 folders (ca. 120 items). 1994–1995.

This series contains letters, copies of newspaper articles, newsletters, and photographs submitted to Ned Harrison from local and regional World War II veterans as well as their family members and friends. All correspondents in this series submitted material related to experiences in the Battle of the Bulge.

Noteworthy items include descriptions of being a prisoner of war by Junius Beaver (4:3); a recounting of experiences of a machine gunner, as described by Ed Brinkley (4:5); and the story related by Sidney LeBrun of his near-death experience and the two soldiers who risked their lives to save him (4:25). Folder 4:45 contains numerous articles examining and discussing war-related issues that may be of interest to some researchers.

5. South Pacific Experiences. 112 folders (ca. 150 items). 1993–1995.

This series contains letters, copies of newspaper articles, newsletters, photographs, and a silk, waterproof map of Nagasaki (5:9). These materials were submitted to Ned Harrison in response to his request that people send in reminiscences of their experiences in the South Pacific during the invasion of Japan. The letters are primarily from soldiers, with a small number coming from family members and friends.

Several letters relate disappointment from soldiers, many of whom had been transferred after May 1945 from the European Theater to the South Pacific, when they learned they would be assigned to fight in Japan. Most veterans in this series, however, express gratitude for President Truman’s decision to use the atomic bomb because they felt it saved American and Japanese lives. For example, see the letters from Hugh Cazel (5:25), John Dewan (5:37), and Homer Wall (5:104). Also of note is the Okinawa diary kept by Robert Pope (5:85).

6. V-J Day Experiences. 51 folders (60 items). August 1995.

This series contains letters, photographs, and copies of newspaper articles from local and regional World War II veterans and civilians. All materials were submitted in response to Ned Harrison’s request for information on what people were doing and thinking on 2 September 1945, the date President Harry Truman declared the official end of World War II.

The bulk of the letters describe a wide range of experiences and emotions felt on that day of celebration. For example, George Anderson writes about how he ran away from home that night (6:3); and Mary Deskins relates how she was in the middle of a blood transfusion when a nurse came in screaming that “the war is over”(6:10). Most correspondents express great joy in remembering this date, but Frances Grogan (6:20) recalls great sadness — because victory would not bring her brother home alive.

A few of the letters relate to events in Greensboro. Corrine Fagg was living in the county, off Rankin Mill Road, and remembers a fog horn sounding, which brought tears of joy (6:13); John Lowe was at the hospital awaiting the birth of his first child (6:29); and Joseph Garrison had just arrived in Greensboro that day to start his ministry (6:17).

The issue of the atomic bomb is addressed, with several people giving very positive opinions with regard to its use. For example, see letters from Darrel Brittsan (6:7), Joseph Guill (6:21), Bill Howell (6:24), Stephen Millikin (6:31), and Raeford Turner (6:42). There is also a video of Ramsay Potts that chronicles his experiences with the 8th Force (6:46). The tape was removed and is now housed with the GHM video collection.
