Dorothy Turlington Norment Papers
Scope and Contents
Except for one undated letter (circa 1945) from Dorothy to her parents, all of the letters are written to Dorothy, most from her future husband. The letters are personal, with an occasional comment on the news of the day. Ed mentions a sighting of Winston Churchill in a parade in Richmond ("looked just like his pictures") and a viewing of The Outlaw with Jane Russell ("just a sexy western" that had been "overly built up by gossip"). There is one letter written after their marriage. Several items relate to their wedding, including a flyer from a hotel where they probably spent their honeymoon. Lt. Tyrone Power was the special attraction of the ORD program.
- circa 1935-1947 and undated
