Ross Carter Papers
Graduating from LMU in 1941, Ross Carter joined the paratroopers of the 504th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 82nd Airborne Infantry. Serving with this unit across Africa, Sicily, Italy, and Western Europe, Ross Carter was an eyewitness to the dark days of World War II. A skillful writer, Ross Carter composed his memoirs of his overseas service in the autumn of 1945, but died of cancer shortly thereafter. His brother, Boyd G. Carter, posthumously published Ross Carter's memoirs entitled Those Devils in Baggy Pants in 1951. The book was an instant best-seller and remains one the finest first-hand accounts of front-line service during the Second World War.
