Biographical or historical data
  • The American Library Association Library War Service was established in 1917 to serve the members of the United States armed services both in foreign operations and domestic bases. The priority was to gather reading materials, mainly books and magazines for the soldiers in France. As the war ended, the focus shifted to fitting military camps and bases with library facilities.
  • In Virginia, the Library War Service was headed by H.L. McIlwaine, State Librarian. Community groups to assist in the effort were also created, including the Richmond War Library Committee, whose records are among the papers included in this collection.
