Correspondence, Outgoing - To Lela Bell Lyle, May - July 1946

 File — Box: 4164.001, Folder: 6

Scope and Contents

From the Collection: The collection contains just over two hundred letters written by William A. Lyle from 1943 to 1946, primarily to his mother in New York City, while he was serving in the United States Naval Reserves at U.S. Naval bases in Maryland, California, and Hawaii, during World War II. There are also letters written to Lyle and other family members, as well as four naval ribbons and matching lieutenant commander pins. These letters are an interesting look at the end of the war and the responsibilities of the soldiers to their families back home.
