A guide to the newly-processed Claude C. Hall Papers is now available online. Housed at the Center for Pacific Northwest Studies, this archival collection documents the work of Claude C. Hall (1896-1977) while employed with the United States Army Corps of Engineers on the Aleutian Islands, Alaska, during World War II. Hall worked for Seattle-based Pacific Huts, Inc., setting up pre-fabricated wooden structures that were used to house troops in Alaska during the war. World War II materials include a scrapbook and photographs documenting construction and use of Pacific Huts throughout the Aleutian Islands, a copy of The Battle of the Aleutians: A Graphic History 1942-1943 (written by Cpl. Dashiell Hammett and Cpl. Robert Garland Colodny), and a 1944 limited edition of This Is The Pacific Hut, describing the history and production of Pacific Huts. The collection also includes some of Hall's World War I papers, as well as a small selection of personal items.
