War Log: The Lt. Eugene Vickary WWII Collection

Canajoharie native Lieutenant Eugene Paul Vickary was a Navigator for the U.S. Army Air Force. His plane was shot down on October 1, 1943, and Vickary was taken prisoner of war. He was held in Stalag Luft III in Żagań from October 11, 1943 until January 27, 1945. He was then transferred to Stalag VII-A in Moosberg, and held there until the camp was liberated by American soldiers on April 29, 1945. "War Log" features his journal from his time as a captive, as well as a select number of his personal artifacts from his time serving our country.

This exhibition will be on display through Veterans Day, 2017 Put Arkell Museum into our Canajoharie trip maker app to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Canajoharie.

  • Small but beautiful displayed history of Beech-nut foods. Tin boxes that were Christmas gift boxes especially interesting. Original American Portrait style paintings & landscapes presented very nicely.
  • Had a lovely visit. Beautifully set up to provide insight into NY history & the Beech-Nut foods story. Most exhibits, the snacks, museum shop, library & restrooms seem to be accessible to wheelchairs. Parking's just 200 feet out front.
