Notes
Survey number HABS CA-2672
Building/structure dates: 1942 initial construction
National Register Number: 66000232
Significance: Buildings 274, 275, and 277 were built in 1942 as part of Area A, a 36-building World War II mobilization cantonment designed according to Army standard plans. From World War II to the Korean War these buildings functioned as part of Letterman Hospital's Crissy Annex. From 1942 to 1944 they served enlisted men who were enrolled in the Special Service School, which trained enlisted men to become medical technicians; and the Hospital Train Unit, which processed sick and wounded soldiers and transferred them to inland hospitals. In 1945 and 1946 two of these buildings, 274 and 275, were part of a four-building prisoner-of-war camp housing Italian and German prisoners. The buildings were returned to Crissy Annex in 1950 and once again served the enlisted men active at Letterman Hospital during the Korean War. They are contributing structures to the Presidio of San Francisco National Historic Landmark District.
