Armed Only with a Camera: WWII Photography of Stanley Troutman

Presented by Heroes Hall Veterans Foundation at Heroes Hall Veterans Museum

Heroes Hall Museum is pleased to presentd WWI photography of Stanley Troutman.  While most men carried weapons into battle during WWII, 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.

An opening ceremony will take place on October 15 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Content Warning: The exhibit will contain graphic images of war.
