A Yank's Memories of Calcutta


73 days, 11 hours and 7 minutes.

Storyltd is pleased to present the collection titled "A Yank's Memories of Calcutta" which are photographs shot by Clyde Waddell.

Clyde Waddell was an American Military photographer who is famously known for taking photographs of Calcutta in 1945. Waddell was chief photographer for the Houston Press before entering the US Army and coming to the India-Burma Theatre, the South east Asian wing of the allied forces during World War II, in November 1943, where he was attached to the Public Relations Staff of Southeast Asia Command 'with the express purpose of acting as personal press photographer for Supreme Commander Admiral Lord Louis Mountbatten.' He accompanied Mountbatten throughout Southeast Asia until February 1945, when he was assigned as news photographer to Phoenix Magazine, 'a 24-page picture weekly sponsored by the combined U.S.-British command'.

With Calcutta as his new headquarters Waddell travelled on exciting assignment to the Burma Front and was in on the Kill at Allied Victories in Mandalay, the Arakan and Rangoon. When Japan capitulated Waddell flew to Singapore to cover the historic signing of peace treaty.

After returning from the Singapore operation, Waddell was granted a dearly earned leave. For the first time in almost two years of overseas duty, he did not have an assignment. And, like the sailor who spends his liberty rowing around Central Park Lake, Clyde began to take pictures.

He took these pictures primarily at the behest of many friends who had been constantly asking him for photos of Calcutta scenes. By the time he completed this project, which brought him into some of the remotest out of bound areas (and even on top of Calcutta’s Howrah Bridge), he was flooded with requests from Americans and Britishers for copies of his photographs. That is how this book was born.

Requests became so numerous and response to the effort so enthusiastic that Waddell felt compelled to make the album of 60 photographs of Calcutta ‘A Yank’s Memory of Calcutta’, more generally available .
