Did you march in one of these corps?

by Steve Vickers, DCW Publisher
publisher@drumcorpsworld.com

I am working on a new book project that involves locating approximately 2,200 different photographs of various corps from over the past three and a half decades. The Drum Corps World photo archives are quite extensive — well over 10,000 prints — but there are a number of corps I have been unable to locate. Because I want this book to be 100% complete, I need your help in finding representative photographs of the following corps.

I am seeking pictures that show the uniform for each specific year and show a few members in action. What I am trying to avoid is staged or formal pictures.

If you can help by supplying a print or JPG electronic image of one or more of these corps from the specific years indicated, please e-mail me at your earliest convenience –
