Scope and Contents 

July 22, 1948

THE SALUTE

Person interviewed: Mr. Nelson T. Offutt, at the office of the War Records Division.

Material obtained: Complete file of the paper for servicemen, THE SALUTE, in seven large volumes (scrapbooks), which also contain many letters from which news items for the paper were gathered.

The clipping attached gives the history of the service publication, THE SALUTE. There is, however, an error. The paper was published from September, 1942, until the end of December, 1945 (not 1946). The seven scrapbooks given to the WRD by Mr. Offutt, the editor, form a complete file. Some of the other editors and recipients of the paper are known to have partial files, but minus the complete collection of letters which supplied news items.

The understanding with Mr. Offutt is that the file is turned over to the War Records Division permanently, but that it will be available for reference to the editors or those mentioned therein.

The wartime section of the Baltimore magazine, Gardens, Houses and People, titled SALUTE (sample attached) was in no way connected with the paper put out by Mr. Offutt and his associates - it was, in fact, started much later. The same title was also used by magazines of national circulation at later dates. None of them ever had any connection with the little sheet which was sent out to servicemen from Baltimore and Maryland, which was written by their friends, in a style that amused fighting men.
