Scrapbook apparently compiled by the mother of U.S. Army PFC Harold Alden Dike (1919–2011), of Clarkstown, Rockland County, New York. Dike was inducted into the service in 1942 (see the Selective Service letter tipped in near the start of the volume). The scrapbook bears a pre-printed title—"PHOTOGRAPHS"—and is labeled (in ink) "Vol. I," but aside from 19 photographs (possibly sent home from training camp), the scrapbook consists largely of ephemera and newspaper clippings related to World War II. [Dike was later founding master of the Windy Hollow Hunt, a traditional fox hunt held in the Hudson River Valley.]
