Summary: Volume 3 [formerly Volume 65]:
The date range of this volume is 1936, and it is quite different than the rest of the collection.  The first page says “Johnstown Cambria Co dt. (?) Pennsylvania Johnstown’s Second Great Flood March 17- 1936 by Ben Coll published by Harry M. Hamm 3363 Portola Ave Pittsburgh 14 Pa.”   The actual book title is Photo Story of Johnstown’s Second Great Flood March 17, 1936.  The first 7 or 8 pages of the volume, although in Foreman’s handwriting, do in fact appear to be taken from the book.   The remainder of the volume contains photographs of the flood likely clipped from this book (although possibly from another source) with annotations by Foreman, who mentions having been in Johnstown on May 15, 1936.
