    Seeking American occupation records of Salinas & the Galapagos Islands

    Jerónimo Corral Newbie

      Greetings, I'm a History Major in Ecuador and currently working on my Thesis about the occupation and operations of the American Bases of Salinas (Gamma Base) and the Galápagos Islands (Beta Base) in Ecuador during WWII. The information that I can get here in Ecuador is limited to diplomatic efforts, while I want to study the military aspect of the bases (both strategic and operational).

       

      I understand that Mr. George Lauderbaugh has worked this subject. If someone can help me get such work, it would be very helpful. Also, how can I get access to documents that are in the National Archives and aren't online?
