Getting My Affairs in Order

Just in case I don’t survive the pandemic, I’m proceeding to get all the files of letters ready to send off to a library interested in war letters. I have all the folders boxed up in file cases and am writing up instructions for them in case something happens to me before I can send them off. The worst case scenario would be that no one knew what to do with them, and I don’t want them scattered among family members, handled or framed or damaged or lost, because to my mind they are not mementos, but historical artifacts. I still think the Center for American War Letters is a good place, but I’ll have to contact them to see if they’re interested, and right now they are in the midst of fires and a pandemic.
