Description

A newspaper article published in The Times Herald on August 9, 1929. The article describes Bryce Lafave (1920-1996), a young boy who underwent mastoid operation surgery two weeks before publication.

Born on November 22, 1920, in Bay City, Michigan, Bryce Lafave served in the United States Army Air Corps during World War II. He enlisted on May 26, 1942, and trained at Chanute Field in Illinois. Lafave married Yvonne Coldsnow in 1942, but they divorced in 1951. He later married Jeannette Louise Smith. Lafave fathered seven daughters between his two marriages. He and his wife moved to Florida by 1992, where he settled in the Tampa Bay area. Lafave died on January 22, 1996, and is buried at Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell.

In 2017, the University of Central Florida was one of three universities selected to launch the National Cemetery Administration’s Veterans Legacy Program Project. The program engaged a team of scholars to make the life stories of veterans buried in the Florida National Cemetery available to the public. The project engages UCF students in research and writing and fosters collaboration between students, faculty and local Central Florida schools to produce interactive curriculum for k-12 students. The corresponding website exhibit uses RICHES Mosaic Interface to create a digital archive of related data. The public can use the project-developed augmented-reality app at more than 100 gravesites at the Florida National Cemetery, where they can access the UCF student-authored biographies of veterans.
