Preserving War Letters

War letters, first-hand accounts from the front lines, provide a unique window on that conflict and constitute primary source material. Preserving these priceless letters as social history for future generations is critical.

Journalist Nancy E. Lynch is the author of the award-winning social history, Vietnam Mailbag, Voices From the War: 1968-1972, based on nearly 1,000 letters she received from Delaware troops in Vietnam as a columnist with The News Journal in Wilmington. Learn how—and how not—to preserve letters from any war as well as old family missives and farm journals, from this informative and interactive program. Handouts of resources for the proper disposition of valuable social records will be provided.

This program is underwritten by a grant from Delaware Humanities
