Armed Only with a Camera: World War II Photography of Stanley Troutman


On display starting Oct. 15, 2022-Sept. 2023

While most men carried weapons into battle during World War II, war correspondent Stanley Troutman was armed only with a camera. He served his country by photographing the war in the South Pacific Theater including the devastated cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki after the dropping of the atomic bombs.

Troutman’s images were published in newspapers and magazines around the world and helped to tell the story of the horrors of war as well as the service and sacrifice of American troops.

The exhibition will include photographs, letters, artifacts, and memorabilia from Troutman’s tour in the South Pacific including his time on mainland Japan.
