DescriptionWhile a student at Illinois Wesleyan University, Florence Ralph exchanged nearly daily letters with Marion Taylor Bird (a University of Illinois graduate) whom she first met at IWU and then married shortly after her graduation in 1930.
The original letters and scanned copies are gifts to IWU from Phyllis, John and Fred Bird, children of the correspondents, and their grandaughter P. L. Embley. Where no date exists directly on a letter and when a post-marked envelope existed, a penciled date was applied by the donor on the face of the letter, just under the weekday noted in the heading.
No transcript of this material is available at this time. Readers are welcome to contribute transcriptions they create or additional subject headings they identify directly to IWU's Special Collections Librarian, Meg Miner, archives@iwu.edu
