Paul F. Peck Papers 1913-1927

  • US US-IaGG MS/MS 01.50
  • Coleção

This small collection includes both personal and professional papers. His personal papers contain correspondence and the diary of a trip to California. Two letters of note are one from his wife written while he was abroad; they numbered their letters to each other and she began by noting which ones of his she had received. Another letter is from a friend in the Red Cross, discussing post-war events in Europe. A typed title page to the diary (which is handwritten) gives the trip’s date as 1927. If that is correct, then the diary was not written by Peck (perhaps by his wife?).

The professional papers include some course syllabi and other academic materials and a file of materials relating to a Grinnell College Endowment Campaign.

Peck, Paul Frederick (Class of 1897)
