Photograph article dated August 11, 1961 partially reads, "The first time John B. Eaton appears in his collection of 'faces and scenes in war and peace' he is a bearded young captain in the 27th Independent Battery, New York Light Infantry. The time is December of 1862, nearly 18 months after the first shots were fired in the Civil War. John B. Eaton's face, along with hundreds of his wartime comrades and commanders, appears numerous times in the thick, age-worn picture album. But nothing else about him nor the person and places that appear in the dog-eared pages is told. The album in now a treasured possession of Mrs. Anne Donnelly, 6002 Topeka Dr., Tarzana, a traffic control officer with the West Valley Police Department." Traffic officer, Mrs. Donnelly, bought the treasured possession for $50.
