Leon Thomas David Diary
Leon Thomas David served as commander of the School for Special Services for the first four months of its operation in Lexington, Virginia. Prior to that he was with the Morale Branch of the Adjutant General’s Office (the precursor of the school) and assistant commandant of the school while it was at Fort Meade, Maryland. While associated with the School for Special Services, David kept a diary of events leading to the formation of the school, problems faced by it, and his role in the school. This is a copy of that diary.
