Emory Hamilton Niles scrapbook
Tickets and photographs in the scrapbook indicate that Niles traveled from London to Amsterdam and Belgium in July, 1914. In August, Niles was in Germany as European hostilities escalated. Newspaper clippings report the mobilization for war. A circular is included from the American Consular Service which advised the evacuation of American citizens by September 19, 1914. Niles's daily calendar, July 23 to September 13, 1914, is included which describes the build-up of events in Europe. Included also are German postcards designed for propaganda purposes.
Soon after his return to Oxford, Niles apparently planned to travel to France. It is known that Niles served with the Ambulance Américaine in 1916. The final item in the scrapbook is a letter from the French Consul General in London, November 3, 1914, and allows that Niles could travel to Basle via Paris.
