In 1917, renowned Waco photographer Fred Gildersleeve published a collection of ten photo postcards that were bound into a small booklet. The booklet was 3.5” x 6”, and printed on card stock. Each card was perforated for easy removal. The back of each card was divided, with the left side dedicated for a personalized message and the right side for the address. There is a note on the dividing line that says “Post Cards of Quality—Gildersleeve”. We were able to acquire this booklet in August of 2022. It is in almost pristine condition, with no post cards missing. All of these photos are by Fred Gildersleeve, and are a part of the Gildersleeve-Conger Collection at The Texas Collection, Baylor University.
One thought on “Gildersleeve’s Views of Camp MacArthur”
Amazing how large Camp McArthur was and yet I never heard about it while I was growing up in Waco from 1950 thru 1970 and only heard of it here in 2022
