“Reading the letters, sharing them with family members of these alumni and hearing their memories over the last few years has been a privilege. Hearing the letters narrated by their peers 70 years later, having these talented theatre students experience this archival interaction of bringing history to life, has added a new dimension to the Muhlenberg Memories Project.”

Susan Falciani, Special Collections & Archives Librarian
