    Looking for Morning Reports of 101st Evacuation Hospital

    Will Hyman Newbie

      I've been following my Grandfather's path through Europe with the 314th Field Artillery Battalion, 80th Infantry Division but it has left me with a few questions. While in France, On October 4th, my Grandfather was sent to the 101st Evacuation Hospital for an "NBC" Non-Battle Casualty. My problem is in my google searching, I can find no record of the 101st Evacuation Hospital, only 101st General Hospital, in England.

       

      I am planning a trip to NARA after Christmas, and I would like to look at any documents on the 101st Evacuation Hospital, 34th Evacuation Hospital, and 53rd Reinforcement Battalion. Has anybody researched these before and know if they contain morning reports or other patient info? Thank you and Merry Christmas!

          Dear Mr. Hyman,

           

          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

           

          Morning reports for Army units from November 1, 1912 to 1959 are in the custody of the National Archives at St. Louis (RL-SL). For access to these records, please contact RL-SL via email at stl.archives@nara.gov.  The morning reports for hospitals would include information about the staff only. The patient’s unit morning reports may include information about where the soldier was located and if he was available for duty.

           

          We searched the World War II Operations Reports, 1940-1948 in the Records of the Adjutant General's Office, 1917-1981 (Record Group 407) and located histories, G-1 periodic reports, and general orders of the 101st Evacuation Hospital; histories, G-1 periodic reports, and  general orders of the 34th Evacuation Hospital; histories and general orders of the 53rd Reinforcement Battalion; and histories & journals of the 314th Field Artillery Battalion, 80th Infantry Division for WWII. These records do not include medical information such as you seek.

           

          There may be administrative reports of the 34th and the 101st Evacuation Hospitals in the Unit Annual Reports, 1940 - 1949 in the Records of the Office of the Surgeon General (Army) (Record Group 112). Please note that these records are about the hospital and not about individual patients.

           

          The staff of the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) will be pleased to make the finding aids to the Record Group 407 and Record Group 112 records available to you or your representative in the Textual Research Room located 8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, MD, near the University of Maryland--College Park campus. The Textual Research Room (Room 2000) hours are 8:45 a.m. to 5:45 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays. The RDT2 consultation room hours are 8:45 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays. No appointment is necessary. Prior to your visit, please consult College Park websites at https://www.archives.gov/dc-metro/college-park/https://www.archives.gov/dc-metro/self-service-copying.html, and https://www.archives.gov/research/start/getting-started.pdf.
