Possibly a traveling salesman: Baltimore, Phila., Jacksonville, Indianapolis, Detroit, Pittsburgh, and eventually in 1926 meeting & marrying Katherine White of Chicago. Miss White is extremely well represented in the correspondence, accounting for 20 of the letters: parents sent six; sister, three; & rest are brother & misc. A nice look at post WWI activities of a sturdy, well educated ex-soldier. Also incl. is Marghi's college graduation book. Genealogy. (4398389241)
