Description

A Visit with Bill Doggett, Exhibitions Curator/Archivist on August 8 2015 at The Spirit of 45, a commemoration event at History Park, San Jose, California that honored the 70th Anniversary of The End of World War II This video features the exceptional stories of 94 year old Lead Bombardier in Normandy Invasion, Miersberg, Stuttgart and Dresden bombing missions, HERBERT J KWART. KWART was a bombardier of The Eight Air Force. His exceptional memory and clarity is sensational. The Spirit of 45 is an annual event over the past decade that has brought together SF Bay Area veterans,their families, historians and WWII History organizations. My participation also honored my parents, the late Rev. John N Doggett Jr, a Chaplain in the Reserves in 1945 WWII San Francisco attending to the Hunter's Point Shipyard African American workers and my mother, the late Frances Brown Doggett, whose stories about being in the midst of the End of WWII Celebrations on Market Street in downtown San Francisco have informed my interest in honoring this history. The Archive of WWII San Francisco Bay Area newspapers which represent the entire Print Media outlets of The Bay Area are available for exhibition rental. The newspapers are: The San Francisco Call Bulletin, San Francisco Chronicle, San Francisco Examiner, San Francisco News, San Jose News and Oakland Examiner.
