U.S. Coast Guard Historian's Office

The U.S. Coast Guard Historian's Office, located in Washington, D.C., has collections relating to the history of the U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Lighthouse Service, U.S. Revenue Cutter Service, and U.S. Life-Saving Service. See <uscg.mil/history> for more information. Items include photos, newspaper articles, and in some cases, correspondence. The majority of items are in the public domain and are unrestricted. Most of the light station images were scanned by Sandra Shanklin. The Society applauds her efforts to make these images available to the general public. We appreciate her contributing the scans to the Society. Note that the images included here are not the entire collection. Additional images may be available in the U.S. Coast Guard Historian's Office files.
