I believe this album was compiled by the brother of Elizabeth.  Elizabeth was a nurse stationed at Pearl Harbor on Dec 7th 1941.  This album includes a few newspaper articles about the memories of those days as told by Myrtle Watson and others in Hawaii and about some of the friendships that started and remained throughout the following decades.  One of these closest of friends to Myrtle Watson was Mary Tate Messec who was visiting her naval aviator brother, William and his bride Helene, who were married in Hawaii.
