Nancy E. Carter Family Collection
Scope and Contents
The collection also contains correspondence written to Mrs. Mildred Carter, primarily by her daughter, Peggy. Also included are letters from her brother, Rodney, and other family members between 1943 and 1964. These letters comment on the daily life of the Carter family, rather than on Nancy's life in the military. However, a few letters from 1942 do contain references to Nancy's decision to join the WAAC.
