Dear Mr. Whitmore,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
The documents you have listed have been declassified; however, they must be marked in such a fashion to cancel the classification and indicate the declassification authority. The best alternative would be canceling the classification here at our facility in College Park, Maryland. If that is not a feasible option, simply lining out the classification markings will do in a pinch. It is recommended that canceling the classification marking be done prior to donating the records to an institution.
As to what institution might want these publications, it may depend upon the back story behind the publications. If they were found as part of a family’s estate, then a local historical society may wish to accession the documents with that local connection, especially if there is a good family story with a service history. If these publications were found in an antique shop or used book store, their value may not be as high as for a donation with a family connection. However, you might try institutions such as the National World War II Museum in New Orleans or the Museum of the Pacific War in Fredericksburg, Texas to see if they have some interest.
We wish you the best of luck in finding a new home for these historical records.
