CECOM History Office Camouflage Collection
Just prior to the BRAC move of the CECOM History Office and Archive from Fort Monmouth, to Aberdeen Proving Ground (Maryland), a rather large donation of materials related to camouflage was received. Shipment of this material part of an ongoing effort by one of CECOM’s Army team C4ISR’s partners to complete shipment of the historical collection of camouflage that had been maintained at their remote location.
CECOM Historians recently processed this accession and archived the materials it contained. The collection includes program information from the about 1940 into the mid-to late 1990s.
Included is an extensive collection of photographic material related to camouflage (including a sizable collection related to decoys and battlefield deception) as well as a large number of Government funded contractor studies and reports, internal reports and studies, a collection of training documents, camouflage pattern and material studies, field and technical manuals, and product bulletins. We even have a few cloth pattern samples!
We are sharing this with you, because the History Office maintains its collection as a resource to the Government, academia, and the general public. Information can be requested by using the link to the contact page above. Keep in mind, researchers can visit the Historical Office Archive, located at Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland.
