John William and Mary Moon at Camp Greene

Thirty-six photographers from across the country received special permission from the United States Army to photograph Camp Greene, a World War I military training base in Charlotte. Usually they came to shoot company portraits of the young men from their area. Most Charlotteans did not train at Camp Greene. Consequently, only one Charlotte photographer, John William and Mary Moon, received permission to take photographs at the Camp.
