Easton W. Williams, of Holland, Michigan, was born in Canada, but became an American citizen after moving to Michigan. When World War II broke out, he was in his mid-forties, and was too old to be accepted into the Army. These scrapbooks were his way of participating in the war, by keeping a record of the events through newspaper articles and pictures.
