About this collection

This collection contains the hand written correspondence and images of John and Elizabeth Faulk. The correspondence contained within takes place chiefly during World War II, while John Faulk was deployed or in boot camp. The correspondence showcases the sentiments and day-to day life of a bygone era. This is displayed via the intimate ongoings of a couple immediately involved in one of the most historic events of the time.  This collection showcases language that is particular to that time.

This is a perspective on WWII that has not been explored as thoroughly as some others associated with the time. These letters reveal an in-depth glimpse into the day to day lives of families who had relatives in active duty.

These letters also reveal the somewhat harrowing reality of a person who has become Missing in Action. There are letters not only between John and Elizabeth Faulk, but also the military, various charity organizations, family, and friends.
