Biography/History

Michael Joseph Kimmel was born Christopher Kimmel to Ralph Kimmel and Elizabeth McCormick-Kimmel on October 29 (30), 1896 in New York City, New York. Prior to World War I, Kimmel was employed as an Embalmer's Assistant. He enlisted on June 19, 1917 at the age of 21 in the United States Army Ambulance Service (USAAS). During the war, his unit was engaged in the following battles: Champagne, Mons Sector in January 1918; Marne, Dormans in July 1918; Champagne, Mons Sector in September 1918; Ardennes, Aisne Sector in September 1918; Aisne, Rethel in September 1918; Meuse, Fagnon in October 1918; and Meuse & Argonne, Mezieres in November 1918. Upon return to the United States, Kimmel married May A. Olson (born February 1, 1903) and had one child, Dorothy May Kimmel-Richards (born August 21, 1924). He worked as an undertaker until his death on August 20, 1963.

Scope and Content

The Christine May Tomiatti collection on Michael Joseph Kimmel contains correspondence from the American Expeditionary Force, sketches, newspaper clippings, lists of battles, and other materials pertaining to Kimmel's service in France during World War I.

Cities and battle sites depicted in the photographs and journal include, but are not limited to, Tours, Marne, Champagne, Sept Saulx, Mezieres, and Paris, France. The journal and photographs document the lives of the men he served with, the lives of the prisoners, the battles he experienced, and sketches of some of the battle fields.
