From The NY Times:
The Museum of American War Letters, as it is known, opened Sunday, a day before National Vietnam War Veterans Day.
Its founder, Andrew Carroll, is the director of the Center for American War Letters at Chapman University in Orange, Calif., and has edited four anthologies of letters by people in the military. The first “wing” of the museum is set aside for the Vietnam War, but he plans to expand to other conflicts, with correspondence he has collected and preserved from the Revolutionary War to the present.
Mr. Carroll, 51, said that he wanted to make the letters, which he called “America’s great undiscovered literature,” available to as wide an audience as possible.
The cost of creating the museum is covered by a $30,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to Chapman University, earmarked for this project. There is no admission fee.
