Craigslist find today. Originally held 150 song books. Named on top to Captain Will Hett O-93138. Not positive about the name though.

So far I've found out that he was the Chaplain for the 18th infantry Regiment, 1st Division.

Very neat piece! Camp Lucas was in Michigan's Upper Peninsula near Sault Ste Marie. It was actually the small arms range area for Fort Brady which protected the locks on the US side of the St. Mary's River. Fort Brady still exists as Lake Superior State University. If you ever decide to part with it, contact me as Michigan's Military Heritage Museum would be very interested and we have the hymnals!     Scott

Here is a photo of Camp Lucas. It also held the hospital as well as many barracks as you can see.   Scott

Here is Fort Brady and you can see Camp Lucas in the background. This part of Fort Brady still exists as the university.    Scott
