Collage of
Letter From Cloudcroft: Lost And Found Memories of My Father

A Convivial Studio Production

History looms larger than a single individual’s life. Yet it is often thru one person’s life that we gain insights into history that would otherwise be veiled. Such was my experience after discovering a collection of letters written by my father in 1946, when he was only 21 years old. When I found the old suitcase with yellowed letters in it, I could not have imagined the scope of history that my father’s story, and my exploration of it, would reveal.
