Scope and Contents

From the Series:

This series contains written exchanges between Maude Presslor and her friends and family. Earlier correspondents from the World War I period include frequent letters from her friend, James "Jim" L. Carson, serving in France. Other letters from this period include congratulatory notes from her mother, Mrs. George Mathas, and aunt, Mrs. M.J. Mathas, on the birth of her first child, Betty Jeane Presslor. During the World War II period, Presslor exchanged frequent letters with her sons, Frank serving in the Army Air Forces and David serving in the Navy. In addition to their letters, Presslor's sons also sent telegrams detailing their travels and activities throughout the war. Post-World War II correspondence centers more on family life and the activities of Presslor's children and grandchildren. In addition to formal letters, the series also contains personal notes, greeting cards, postcards, and invitations sent to Presslor by her friends and family.
