Adam Matthew in New Orleans collaboration

Share this on social media:

Adam Matthew has announced a collaboration with The National WWII Museum in New Orleans. The single archive project will cover personal experiences during the Second World War and also touch upon those specific to the city. The new resource will reveal how the war changed American culture and society on a very personal level via HD video oral histories, 3D objects and personal collections.

As the official WWII museum of the United States and one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country, the National WWII Museum in New Orleans features a collection of artefacts and first-person narratives that provide the uniquely personal experiences of the Second World War.

The new collection will collate a mixture of materials including letters, diaries, scrapbooks, sketches, ephemera, photographs and a range of multimedia to bring these stories to life for academic research, online for the very first time.

'We’re thrilled to partner with Adam Matthew as we continue to make our collection of WWII personal narratives even more accessible to researchers and scholars,' said Museum executive vice president and COO, Stephen Watson.

'At the core of every Museum endeavour are the personal stories of those who experienced the WWII years first-hand. Adam Matthew is helping us ensure that these stories are not lost with the passing of WWII veterans, and helping us share this meaningful content with scholars living all over the world who will use it to build content on how the war impacted our lives today.'
