WORLD WAR II - Sketches And Doodles From Camp

During the time when B. D. was drafted, and before he shipped out to Europe, he wrote home frequently. Most of these letters are highly personal to his wife and children, but among the words he wrote he included many sketches of life.

These black-and-white sketches are the earliest artwork and cartoons that B. D. drew which are extant. Unfortunately, these are extremely small and mostly done in faint pencil, making reproduction difficult.
