Film flashes of the European front: The war diary of Albert K. Dawson, 1915-1916
Abstract

Albert K. Dawson (1885-1967) was an American photographer from Vincennes, Indiana, who started his career in 1912. His firm Brown & Dawson supplied films and news photographs of the First World War's Western and Eastern fronts, taken by Dawson between January 1915 and February 1916 with the aid of the German, Austrian and Bulgarian armies. The paper examines Dawson's experiences during World War I based on excerpts from his published diary and other documentary sources, as well as portions of his films recently discovered in the Library of Congress's John E. Allen collection.
