This is an album containing photographs of the Korean War. William Thomas West, the photographer, was a surgeon in the 3rd Infantry Division, 9th Field Artillery, possibly Battery B, and he served in the furthest surgical unit north of the 38th parallel. The album contains photographs of Seoul, Taegu, a mash hospital, USO, the aid station where West was a surgeon, and members of his unit. He received a commendation ribbon with a medal pendant for his service. West graduated from the University of Kansas Medical School in 1949 and while a resident, he was drafted into the Army. After the war, he finished his residency in obstetrics and gynecology and later was a physician at the Wichita Clinic in Wichita, Kansas. His father Dr. Ray West was one of 10 founders of the Wichita Clinic, a group of physicians which combined their talents, experience, and education into an innovative multi-specialty group practice. On December 9, 2010, Wichita Clinic became part of Via Christi Health.
