Biographical/Historical Note

Henry Grady Marshall was born May 23, 1918. He was married to Lizzie Adams Marshall (1904-1975). He joined the U.S. Army in May 1941 at the age of 23 and served as a staff sergeant in the United States Army, stationed in North Africa and Europe during World War II. He died on September, 24, 2002.

Grady was originally from Concord, Georgia, and was first stationed at Fort McPherson, Georgia then Fort Sill, Oklahoma. He went into field artillery and was assigned to the 45th Infantry Division at Camp Barkeley, Texas. Grady was later sent to Fort Devens, Massachusetts in early 1942.

By June 1943, Grady finally made it overseas to North Africa with the rest of the 45th Infantry Division. In July, he participated in the amphibious assault on Sicily. The rest of 1943, Grady traveled through Italy with his division and likely fought at Salerno in early September 1943. In January/February 1944, Grady was a participant in the Battle of Anzio (Operation Shingle). He remained at Anzio Beachhead until late May, when the Germans withdrew, then his division moved elsewhere in Italy. In early August 1944, he trained in Taranto, Italy, with the French navy to prepare for the Southern France landing. In late August 1944, he was seemingly been a participant in Operation Dragoon on August 15, 1944 at St. Maxime. In September, he was still on the move in France with the 45th Infantry Division.

In March 1945, Grady crossed into Germany with the 45th Infantry Division after more combat then a period of rest and training in France. In late April, the 45th Infantry Division was known to liberate the Dachau concentration camp. Grady was only able to return in late August 1945. He moved from Munich to Erding, Bavaria, Germany in June and was stationed there until August. He returned home sometime in very late August or early September.


Scope and Content Note

The collection consists of fifty-one rolls of film Henry Grady Marshall took during his time in North Africa and Europe during World War II. Some of these photographs were taken with a German "robot" camera, which could put as many as fifty exposures on a thirty-six exposure roll of film. Towards the end of the war Marshall was stationed in Munich, Germany and many of the images seem to have been taken in that area. Contact sheets have been made by the University of Georgia Libraries' Photographic Services and are located in Box 1 of the collection.
