“Date Which Will Live in Infamy”

After Pearl Harbor, Hawaii was attacked in the early morning hours by the Japanese, President Franklin D. Roosevelt coined the phrase, “December 7th, 1941…the date which will live in infamy.” Following the tragedy that left 2,402 dead and the nation in shock, the United States became active in World War II.

In remembrance of this anniversary, you can view historical records about the raid on Pearl Harbor at the Genealogy Center. The library holds over 97 titles pertaining to the event, including newspaper articles and personal accounts. Our Military Heritage database features 35 links to information on Pearl Harbor.

Take the time today to remember those lost and what we’ve gained by looking at a piece of history.
