  • Abstract

    This small collection consists of a ceremonial book documenting the School of the Line and Staff of Camp Hopkins, October Session 1942; letters to and orders for the officers of the 1st Aero Squadron of the California State Militia, headquartered in Griffith Park, regarding a program for enlisting recruits, the operation of an air base at Manzanar, and promotion orders; and photographs, presumably of members of the Squadron. The collections appears to have been assembled by Captain John F. B. Carruthers, who served as chaplain at Camp Hopkins School of the Line and Staff. Camp Harry L. Hopkins, located in the Santa Monica Mountains, was the training center for the California State Guard. The School of the Line and Staff was established in September 1942.
