ADB&C materials at the Brooke County Public Library began digitizing materials in the fall of 2007.  The American Defenders of Bataan & Corregidor has the largest collection of documents, photos, and maps relating to the early defense of the  Philippines by the American Defenders of Bataan & Corregidor and is the only repository devoted exclusively and solely to the ADBC  membership. 

 Past Brooke County Public Library Director, Kay Wallace, Wellsburg, WV, is determined to preserve these cherished resource materials for future generations. She and her husband, George, editor of the QUAN, are strong supporters of the cause and are looking forward to the day when the general public is aware of the true accounts of the war in the Philippines. Catalogers Dorie Tennant Catherine Feryok, as well as program coordinator,  Jim Brockman, ADBC Museum Curator is working to provide students, scholars, military service personnel, historians, artists, researchers, teachers, retirees, and descendants with the best quality access to vital military reference materials.
