Scope and Content Note

The collection consists of a scrapbook and letters. The scrapbook contains material relating to Leonard Fuller, including wedding announcement, photographs, notifications of Fuller's death, sympathy cards, Purple Heart certificate, and letters which were written to Fuller and returned marked "deceased."

The other letters in the collection are between Elizabeth and Ernest Sauvageau before and after their marriage and span the beginning of World War II until Ernest's discharge in 1946. Although his letters mention Army life and hers mention work and family, the letters are basically love letters.
