Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the series Organizational History Files, 1964-1971 for Fort Belvoir, Virginia in the Records of the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command (Record Group 553) that may contain some relevant information. The series "Belvoir Castle" Newspaper Files, 1965-1966 and the series Newspaper Files, 1972 in Record Group 553 may be useful as well. We located 21 additional series for Fort Belvoir in Record Group 553 that include organizational planning files, general orders, publication files, management files, and more. Although these series are primarily textual records, there may be photographs interfiled with the other documents. These records have not been digitized.

Plus, photographs of various U.S. Army activities dating from World War I to 2007 are in the custody of the National Archives at College Park - Still Picture (RDSS).

Many of these images have been digitized and may be viewed online using the Catalog. For more information about the non-digitized records, please contact RDSS at firstname.lastname@example.org.
