Description
The Robert S. Benner photographs of boatswains' whistles, 1976-1995, (SAFR 23340, P76-082L) are comprised of 712 photographic prints and 6 inventories of photographs of boatswains' whistles in the donor's personal collection. The collection has been processed to the series level and is open for use without restrictions.
Background
Biography: Robert S. Benner lived in Los Angeles with his wife Carol Joyce Benner, whom he married in 1947. They were married for 63 years until her death on July 6, 2010. They had two children named Ray Benner and K.C. Boelsems. There is a boatswain whistle in this collection that has the inscription: "LT. ROBERT S. BENNER USNR 440326 WORLD WAR II-KOREA". This is presumably the donor's name and U.S. Naval Reserve number, but this could not be confirmed.
