Old Man’s Draft: New Hampshire

November 16th, 2010

Just over fifty men with the surname Woodward or Woodard registered for the Old Man’s Draft for World War II in New Hampshire in April 1942. While working at the National Archives in Washington in July 2007, I had the opportunity to view microfilm of those serving from New Hampshire. I was hoping to find the registration card of my grandfather, Oscar H. Woodward, Sr. – BINGO!
While reading the film, I constructed an index to other New Hampshire Woodwards who registered.
