Related Materials

See the William Sharman Papers, 1916–1965 (MS 3068), a small collection documenting the military service of native New Yorker William Sharman (1894–1978). Like Eric G. Lindquist, Sharman served with the 71st New York Infantry, National Guard, in Texas, during the 1916–17 border skirmishes spawned by the Mexican Revolution. Sharman subsequently enlisted in the 106th Regiment Field Artillery, United States Army, 27th Infantry Division, and saw action in France during World War I. Sharman actually appears in at least five photographs in Lindquist's "Written and Pictorial Diary" (see box 1, folder 4, preceding page 21, and following page 22).

Processing Information

Arranged and described by archivist Joseph Ditta, March-April 2019. The Eric G. Lindquist Papers came to the New-York Historical Society in three overstuffed, deteriorating post binders, which have been discarded. Two binders held Lindquist's "Written and Pictorial Diary" (now filed in Box 1, Folders 4-6, and Box 2, Folders 1-3), and the third binder held his typescript memoir (now filed in Box 2, Folders 4-5).
