Victor Harter envelopes and letters

 Collection — Box 1
Identifier: RHC-115
Scope and Contents 310 stamped air mail envelopes all addressed to Victor J. Harter's wife, Jessie, who lived during 1942 through 1945 with her widowed mother at 9 Madison Avenue, Irvington, New Jersey.

These also give evidence of Victor's changing postings.
