Charles Lewis (Louie) Adams

Charles Lewis Adams Photograph Collection

Charles Lewis Adams was a studio photographer from Winchester, KY before entering the Marines during World War II. 

He was sent to aerial photography school in Boston, Massachusetts and when he was deployed to Emirau Island in the Pacific, his job was to take aerial photographs for bomb damage assessment.  While on the island, Louie took numerous photos of his fellow soldiers, equipment, airplanes, and island inhabitants.

This is a collection of some of the photos Louie took while stationed on Emirau.  Most of the people in the photos are not identified, but the museum wants to make them available to the public.  Hopefully, someone will identify some of the people.
