Description

This silk scarf, from Japan, was given to Mary J. Jones by her brother Paul Jacoby, who served in World War II. Mr. Jacoby was one of thousands of military personnel who sent postcards, letters, and gifts home to family and friends. This silk scarf has two images, both front pages of different newspapers read by servicemen in the Pacific: the Sunday, September 2, 1945 edition of the Pacific Stars and Stripes and the October 25, 1945 edition of The Mainichi. The publications of these works were completed within two months of the August atomic bombings of Japanese cities Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but no mention is made of these events. The focus is on General MacArthur and the future of the United States. Donated by Mary-Frances Hoh.
