My name is Paula Warp. My father, Paul A. Warp, played a big part in organizing the Sixth Armored Division Association and the 68th Tank Battalion Association. He served on the Board, was President in 1951, and for decades was the unofficial publicist and photographer for these organizations.
On November 17, 2008, I donated my father's two leather-bound photo albums, each measures 19"x 24" with 290 pages of photos, almost all with captions, original artwork, maps and newsletters, to the Library of Congress Veterans History Project. I wanted these treasures to be preserved in a place where relatives and friends of my father's fellow "Super Sixers" could see what "Daddy did in the War." It is referenced as The Paul A. Warp Collection.
Before donating the books, I made a digital record for my family to have. I took a picture of each page and every photo on each page, appoximately 2,000 images. I know it took Paul Warp years to assemble these books. Yet, even with modern day technology, I spent over 50 hours taking the initial images and 18 hours scanning Sixth Armored Association and 68th Tank Battalion Association Newsletters. The post-processing of those images to create this DVD took another 70 hours.
Once I completed the project, I realized these images should be shared with relatives and friends of these wonderful men and women pictured in the books. Also, those interested in the history of the Sixth Armored Division could benefit from my father's "view" of the War. Therefore I decided to sell copies of the original DVD.
