Photos can be printed or downloaded.There are also smaller numbers of photos of U.S. Navy personnel, U.S Army nurses, female civilian war workers, U.S. Army camps, cemeteries, and U.S. Navy ships. Persons in the photos are not identified, so you cannot search this collection by personal name—you need to know the unit(s) he or she served in.

If you are searching for a Missouri World War I soldier or sailor, you can figure out which unit(s) he or she served in by searching the Missouri Soldiers Database, a creation of the Missouri State Archives. The Missouri State Archives holds nearly 1½ million pages that document the service of Missourians in domestic and foreign wars between 1812 and World War I. These military records primarily consist of individual service cards, but the extensive collection also includes muster rolls, special orders, reports, and more.

The reference database can be used at SLPL locations, or you can use it from home if you have a valid SLPL Library Card.
