McDaniel Lewis Papers

McDaniel Lewis was born in Asheville, NC, attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and spent most of his life in Greensboro. He was heavily involved in a wide range of groups and organizations all of his life.

Of particular interest to this project is the very large WWII series, which includes correspondence, clippings, programs, tickets, and photographs relating to Lewis’s activities in Greensboro. There is important documentation relating to the organizational work and creation of Recognition Day, which Lewis headed and which honored the war service of local veterans at a huge outdoor celebration in 1946. Among his many local activities during the war, Lewis also served on the Selective Service board which is documented in great detail, from both a local and state/national context, with material relating to draft deferments, registration totals, servicemen assistance, etc.
