War Casualties & P.O.W.s

This database contains information on some of the military personnel from the Duluth area who were killed or captured during World War II and the Korean War. 

The database was maintained by reference librarians at the Duluth Public Library during and after World War II. It is incomplete and is a work in progress. Lists of casualties from St. Louis County may also be found at St. Louis County/USGen or at the Veterans' Memorial Hall.

Each entry may include name, address, rank, service branch, date of incident (killed, captured, etc.), and a brief description. All entries have at least one citation to an article about the person that appeared in either the Duluth News Tribune (DNT) or the Duluth Herald (DH).

Any words included in the entry are searchable. For example, entering "German prisoner" in the keyword search box will result in a list of all entries including information about the person being captured by the Germans.
