On offer is a large archive of 150+ original 1944 - 1946 manuscript letters handwritten by adoring wife and new mother Doris Tibbels of Baltimore Maryland whose homey, loving letters make for an intimate look into the home front life of this charmingly head over heels in love with her adored 26 year old serviceman husband. Even when he is in Maryland at the Edgewood Arsenal and coming home many times she is still somewhat desperate in her detachment. Later while she writes of family and friends and her doings in Baltimore as the War winds down her husband is still active in New Orleans at the Special Chemical Detachment readers will feel her longing in a palpable way as if each letter is an attempt to draw him to her. She continually tells him she needs him to function in what some men might feel is a cloying manner. That said it is remarkable that she maintains the level of adoration over the years correspondence. Nearly every letter starts with whether it is a happy day or a sad day for receipt of his letters. We learn from the addresses that Charles is a T/5 or Technician Fifth Grade. Included ephemera includes clippings, holiday and birthday cards, military passes, laundry receipts, some small photographs adding further breadth to the group. Overall G+.
