        American Solider Photo Album

      Okinawa, 1957. Near Fine. Oblong photo album measuring 11" x 15". Black lacquer over wooden boards accented with inlaid pieces of mother of pearl appliques, and some hand-painted details, showing a mountain and two tradition-style Japanese buildings beside a body of water; album tied with silk cords. Very good plus with chips and tears. A collection of 73 photographs and snapshots of American soldiers stationed in Okinawa, at Sobe camp in the 1950's. The majority of the assemblage are black and white photos measuring 3.5" x 5" with some 3.5" x 2.25", two 8"x10", and a 5.5" x 14" group photo. All images are clear, a few have captions either in the margins or on the verso of the photo. The group photo is laid in at the rear of the album and is creased, with one section at the right margin torn away, causing minor loss. The album depicts soldiers on duty, a work in the machine shops, views of the base camp, "clowning in the China Sea," playing baseball and basketball, along with locals and town businesses. A picture of a camp sign indicates the soldier/photographer was stationed at Sobe Area, Rycom Gen. Depot, 65th Engineer Heavy Shop Company, 596th Engineer Maintenance Company, 526th Engineer Maintenance Department." A dozen of the photos show both African American and white soldiers sharing the basketball court, work duties, and the baseball field. One of the 8" x 10" photos shows a group of black and white soldiers sharing a traditional meal, seated on the floor around a table, all diligently employing their chopsticks. A caption on one of the baseball game photos identities it as being between the Sobe Engineers and the Magushaki [Hagushaki?] bombers, a Japanese team, at Ishikawa Beach. The final picture of the group is taken in front of a U.S. Army plane, dated 1957 and personalized, "Good Luck Lt. Bass," and is signed by seven men.

The recipient, Joseph Clark was a United States Senator from Pennsylvania from 1957 to 1969. He worked with Kennedy in the Senate, and continued to their push for civil rights, highlighting the issue as a major part of Kennedy's presidential campaign. Endorsing new legislation--to extend voting rights, end discrimination in education and housing, and establish the Fair Employment Practices Commission, among other things--Kennedy announced during his campaign that Clark and Congressman Emanuel Celler had agreed to prepare a comprehensive civil rights bill 'embodying the commitments of the Democratic platform,' to be introduced early in the next congressional session.

Matted and framed with the printed text of Kennedy's inaugural speech, a portrait of Kennedy giving his speech. The entire piece measures 27 inches by 34 inches.

A contemporary, signed, inscription from Yourcenar, fills the front free endpaper with a long quotation. Fine in fine dustjacket. Marguerite Yourcenar is under appreciated but will ambush you like identity theft. In Coup de Grâce a Prussian officer murders the woman who loves him because he loves her brother, in line with the central figures throughout her fiction, men torn between their passions and society's demands, during key moments of history. After WW II, she lived in France and the U. S. with her partner, Grace Frick, who translated this book into English. In 1950 they moved to Maine, and in 1980 (go Margot) Yourcenar became the first woman elected to the Academie Française (all customs were once eccentricities), that elitist society, created by Cardinal Richelieu in 1634 (the very Richelieu from The Three Musketeers), limited to 40 constituents entrusted with guarding French culture and to which admission is only upon the death of a sitting member (you can write your own joke here)_______________.
