A fascinating project is ongoing at Muhlenberg College's Trexler Library: digitizing letters from students who were serving in armed forces abroad during WWII.

Host John Pearce welcomes guests Susan Falciani and Dr. Kate Ranieri to discuss what these letters reveal about that era. The students abroad were eager to hear of happenings at the college and in Allentown. Current students of media studies create documentaries based on the many stories from the 1940s.
