Wyatt Scrapbook - Dance for AFFCC by USO

In November 2011, I purchased a scrapbook at an antiques mall in Carson, California. The scrapbook is believed to have belonged to Laurine Wyatt. I am transcribing the articles and documents contained in the scrapbook with the hope that it may be of value to genealogists who may be researching the individuals named.

“Swing and Sway Theme of Dance for AFFCC by U. S. O.

It was swing and sway for more than 400 couples last night at the Y. M. C. A. gymnasium at the first dance given for the newly arrived men at the Army Air Force Classification Center on Thompson Lane.

At left are shown Miss Vivian Edwards and Cadet Chester Langworthy typical of the many youthful couples that decorated the dance floor. At right is a general scene showing the crowd of dancers.
