Library Wants World War II Memorabilia Returned

The Public Library in Albuquerque-Bernalillo County is asking for the return of a trunk full of priceless memorabilia and artifacts from World War II. The trunk was in a library patron's vehicle that was stolen earlier this month. Police recovered the stolen car, but the library's trunk is still missing.

The Public Library has several "traveling trunks" that can be checked out by patrons. They are history in a kit that is primarily used by teachers as educational tools, providing students with actual artifacts to examine from significant periods in history. Most of the items in the trunks are donated by relatives or families, or have been painstakingly collected by patrons, library staff and volunteers. Topics of other trunks at the library include the Lewis and Clark expedition, immigration, the Santa Fe Trail, the Camino Real, and WW I, Korean War and Vietnam wars.

The missing World War II trunk, valued at about $800, is a duffle bag with wheels that includes photographs, medals and other memorabilia from a World War II soldier, items that will be nearly impossible to replace.

If you have information about the missing World War II trunk please call the Albuquerque Police Department at 505-242-COPS (242-2677).
