Description

This collection consists of letters, news reports, correspondence, and photographs arranged in two series: I. Correspondence from Richard to Claire Moore and II. Miscellaneous News Reports, Correspondence, and Photographs collected by Richard Moore during his service in Vietnam.

The collection has been arranged chronologically; correspondence starts in September 1969 and continues until July 4, 1971. Two letters might be particularly interesting for researchers studying Stephen H. Warner, Gettysburg College Class of 1968: a February 15, 1971 letter that mentions Warner’s death and the relationship between Warner and Richard Moore and a June 27, 1971 letter that discusses Warner’s relationship with Gettysburg College. Most of the correspondences are typed letters signed.
