WWI's CRB
(Commission for Relief In Belgium)

Five Items:
Editor's Note: I've been a non-academic historian for more than 45 years. In the late 1970s/early 1980s, I spent six years of my spare time researching and writing my first history book, Stapleton International Airiport: The First Fifty Years (Pruett Publishing, 1983). The two other major historical areas that I've focused on are: 
Old photos of Italy
   Italy Before WWI:

   1914 Glass Slides 
3. CRB List of Delegates -- From  
October 1914 until April 1917 (when America entered the war), there were only 170-185 delegates who supervised the distribution of food and clothes in German-occupied Belgium. Because there is no master list that matches names with photos, I've started such a list and hope that others can help me complete it. Click here for the Master List of Delegates. 
5. Honor Bound -- An 850-page historical novel that I spent two full time years researching and writing.  Click here to read the prologue and opening chapters. 
2. CRB Blog -- I've created a blog that  chronicles my efforts to re-immerse myself in the 1980s research I did to write Honor Bound. My intention is to create numerous historical articles and ultimately a page-turning history book that's novel-like in style. Click here for the blog. 
4. CRB Contacts & Resources -- To facilitate beneficial interactions between people interested in the CRB and/or Herbert Hoover, I've created a page that includes Academic Authors, Research Institutions and Libraries, Researchers for Hire, Relatives of CRB Delegates, and Websites/Videos of Interest. Click here to go to the Contacts and Resources Page. 
1. Three books about the   Commission for Relief in Belgium (CRB) --  Behind the Lines (2014) and WWI Crusaders (2018) have already been published and have received numerous national recognitions and awards, including Kirkus Reviews Best Books of 2014 and 2018. The third book, Yanks Behind the Lines, will be published by international book publisher Rowman & Littlefield in October 202o.  Learn more at Commission for Relief in Belgium.
