Joseph A. Moller Archive

Established in 1982, the non-circulating Joseph A. Moller Archive is the heart of the 390th Memorial Museum. Unique to the 390th, archives comprise the majority of the Museum’s collections. Archives include original photographs, letters, manuscripts and oral histories documenting the experiences and truths of American veterans.

Demonstrating the pluralist identity of the 8th Air Corps and the 390th Bomb Group, our archive offers academic and non-academic patrons alike an enriching and cohesive immersive experience, as well as a fulfilling visit. The collection of oral histories and written accounts from 390th Bomb Group veterans will provide scholars interested in memory studies ample material relating to the construction of post-war memory in America.  As scholarly efforts to bring in voices from outside the dominant historical narrative increase, collections like those held in the 390th Memorial Museum offer exciting new resources for academic discourse.

The Archive is accessible on the second tab within the collections portal  OR you can view the Archive separately by clicking the button at the bottom of this page.

Visiting the Archive online

The Joseph A. Moller Archive has transitioned to a new archival system and, like most archives is constantly working on a backlog of unprocessed material. Collections available to past researchers are present in the online collections portal. As the backlog is cataloged, you can view the most recently processed material by clicking the link in the catalog to “Newly Processed Materials”.
