Abstract

The Terwilliger Family Collection contains numerous letters written by Harvey Beebe, an American soldier from southwestern New York during World War I.

Summary

Creator:
Beebe, Harvey
Date Coverage:
1912-1919
Quantity:
0.40 cubic ft.

Harvey Beebe was from Falconer, New York. He worked at the National Chautauqua County Bank until 1918, when he left his position to serve in the Navy during World War I. Beebe completed basic training in the United States and then served in France during the war. He returned home and was stationed in Hampton Roads, Virginia beginning in February 1919. During his service, Beebe frequently wrote letters home to his family, especially his mother Grace Frankenfield, and future wife, Hazel Ames. Harvey and Hazel Beebe married in early 1919 after his return to the United States and their daughter was Shirley Beebe Terwilliger.

The vast majority of this collection is handwritten correspondence sent by Harvey Beebe to his family and girlfriend back home. There are some additional items such as correspondence from others, Beebe's local draft board card, a machine gun manual, and a list of sailors staying in a U.S. Naval Barrack in France.

The collection is organized chronologically. There are no series.

Gordon Terwilliger, grandson of Harvey Beebe, donated this collection to the M.E. Grenander Department of Special Collections in 2014.
