FIRST DIVISION MUSEUM DIGITIZATION PROJECT

The First Division Museum at Cantigny Park in Wheaton, Illinois, announced the completion of the first phase of a massive digitization project that now enables convenient access to historic records from World War II housed in the museum's Robert R. McCormick Research Center.

The project involved digitizing part of the research center's extensive microfilm reel collection of the 1st Infantry Division's WWII battle documents. Researchers, students and the general public now have remote access to WWII-era records of the U.S. Army's 1st Infantry Division concerning D-Day and other historic battles. There is no charge to view the digital collection, which may be accessed from the home page of the museum's website.
