2 Title:   Bryant Sellers papers  Requires cookie*
  Creator:   Sellers, Bryant  
  Dates:   1953-1954  
The collection consists of letters written almost daily by Sellers to his wife, Mary (b. 1935) who was back home in Pomona and Chino, California. Although mainly love letters, there is some information about the routine of Army camp life. Sellers also tries to advise his young wife on matters such as finances, health and car maintenance. The letters end in May 1954, as Mary plans to move to Georgia to be with her husband. There are also three letters written by servicemen that appear to be unrelated to the Bryant Sellers papers.
