Hammer Field was the site of a World War II Army Air Corps base and then became the Fresno Air Terminal. It is now the Fresno Yosemite International Airport.
Part of the photographs in this collection are copies from the collection of the grandmother of Suzanne Tietjen (a student assistant in the Map Library in 1991). The other photographs are from the collection of Robert H. Bensing who was stationed at the base late in the war. These photographs were donated by his son, Tim Bensing, in 2003.
