Starting work on a WWII collection


Today I went back to working on the Pulliam collection. I’m looking through the boxes to determine what is included and anything that may stand out in the present arrangement, such as out of order letters in the binders. Pulliam’s collection of letters written during World War II, mostly to his wife and daughter, are organized in several binders based on their date of authorization. Occasionally, a couple are not in proper temporal order. Also, some materials need to be properly stored, such as telegrams, which generally have more acidic paper. I’ve already rearranged some materials to more appropriate order, like the instruction manuals for Pulliam’s training in one series and information about the health of him and his unit in another.
