Overview and metadata sections

Eppley, Marion, 1883-1960

Marion Eppley (Princeton Class of 1906) was an American physical chemist and research scientist.

The collection consists of an album of 38 photographs (5" x 7" and 9" x 11") taken during World War I, collected by Eppley (Princeton Class of 1906). The photographs show undated scenes of soldiers, ruins of buildings, convoys, trenches, guns, and prisoners, at the French fronts at the Somme, the Marne, Vosges, and elsewhere, and many taken at the Greek front at Salonika (Thessalonike), the seat of the Greek provisional government in 1916. There are also several photographs of French officers and statesmen, such as Maurice Paul Sarrail, Aristide Briand, Albert Thomas, Jean-Baptiste Marchand, and Joseph Jacques Joffre. The photographs have autograph captions in French.
