Havelock is located in Craven County, North Carolina. Its name is derived from Sir Henry Havelock (1795-1857), a British officer who became famous during the Indian Rebellion of 1857-1859 (also known as the First War of Independence and Sepoy Mutiny). While the area had been inhabited at least since the 1850s when it was called "Havelock Station" when the Atlantic and North Carolina Railroad built a depot there and the Cherry Point Marine Air Station had been established in 1941, Havelock was not formally established as a town until 1959. As of 2010, the town had a population of just over 20,000.

Cherry Point Marine Air Station is located at the foot of the great Outer Banks, approximately ninety miles west-southwest of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. In July 1941, after an authorization by Congress, clearing of swamps, farmland and timberland totaling some eight thousand acres began. In November (only seventeen days before the attack on Pearl Harbor) initial construction of the station commenced. The facility was originally commissioned on May 20, 1942 as Cunningham Field, in honor of Lt. Col. Alfred A. Cunningham, the Marine Corps' first aviator. The name Cherry Point, taken from a local post office set among cherry trees, was later applied to the facility.

The initial purpose of the station was a training facility during World War II for Marines bound for service in The Pacific Theater, as well as a base for anti-submarine operations. During the Korean and Vietnam wars, Cherry Point assisted by supplying a steady supply of replacement aviation personnel. With the deployment of several squadrons, the station played a major role in the victory in Southwest Asia during Operation Desert Storm.

Scope and arrangement

This collection contains ninety-seven photographs and a few documents pertaining to the future site of Cherry Point Marine Air Station. The photographs document land and structures before clearing took place to build the facility. The forty-two homes that existed on the property are shown in the photographs along with farmhouses, outbuildings, several vehicles, fields, roads, waterways and a service station. The area was photographed as part of government contract NOy 4957 during August and September 1941, a few months before the bombing of Pearl Harbor. The photographs contain tract numbers that correspond to a map still retained by Ellis. According to Ellis, by the time the photographs were taken most of the homes in the photographs had been abandoned and some had already been razed. Those that did remain were razed soon after the photographs were taken. At least one settlement that was dislocated by the construction of Cherry Point was Little Witness. Little Witness was an African- American settlement at the intersection of Hancock Creek and the Beaufort Road (Highway 101). Ellis later recorded interviews of original residents, but these are not part of the collection.

The photographs in this collection were given to the donor, Edward B. Ellis Jr., by the Secretary to the Commanding General at Cherry Point. Ellis made copies of the photographs and gave sets to the Cherry Point Command Historian, the Alfred A. Cunningham Air Museum and the new Little Witness Church of Havelock, NC. He also kept some for his personal archives.

The photographs in Box 1, Folder c were taken on August 3, 1941 by Wooten-Moulton Studios of New Bern, North Carolina. Photograph #6 is missing from the collection and photograph #10 is signed and dated by G. Moulton on the back.

The photographs in Box 1, Folder d were taken on August 28-29, 1941. Roy Eubanks of Beaufort, North Carolina was the photographer. Photographs #8D, #24 are missing, and #28 is erroneously labeled as "another" #23. According to Ellis, the building in photograph #24 was the schoolhouse at the settlement of Little Witness.

The photographs in Box 1, Folder e were taken on September 15-16, 1941. The photographer is unknown. Photograph #4 is missing. According to Ellis, the church in photograph #4 was the church at the settlement of Little Witness.

Among the documents are three indexes (duplicated in the container list for the collection) by Ellis describing each photograph. Another document composed by Ellis offers further provenance of the photographs and history of the area.
