Camp Swift, Texas Image:

Plat of Camp Swift showing the location of barracks and other buildings, streets, pipelines, the magazine area, the prisoner of war camp, topographic features, and roads into the reservation. A key to the buildings is given. The map is part of a manuscript volume (to the best of our knowledge unpublished)--History of Camp Swift, by Walter E. Long and Colonel Parke Houston. It is cataloged as 976.4C/B297s. Two copies of the map are present--an original diazo copy and a reduced black and white photocopy (reduced 66%). Please use the reduced copy for general use to save wear and tear on the larger, original copy. 2/1/95
