Description

Lieselotte O'Meara was born in Danzig, Poland in 1920. She and her family defected to Germany after the Russian take-over of Poland. Lieselotte became a nurse in Germany during World War II and worked in an American occupied hospital in Bayreath, Germany where she met her future husband, David O'Meara. After his discharge from the U.S. Army, they moved to the United States, finally settling in Old Town, Maine in the mid-1950s.

The collection includes 35mm slides documenting Lieselotte O'Meara's international travels, natural, and scenic landscapes.
