Description
This collection contains a run of correspondence that Daniel T. Mitchell authored while in the U.S. Army during World War II.
Background
Dr. Daniel T. Mitchell, born in 1913, graduated from Loyola University in 1936. He served in World War II and went on to earn his Ph.D. at the University of Southern California. His doctoral dissertation, “The Reception of Oliver Goldsmith's Non-dramatic Works in the United States, 1768-1900,” is housed in the Special Collections Department, along with over 200 items from his personal library donated by his widow Ellen Mitchell in 1995. Mitchell was an Associate Professor in English and Communication Arts at Loyola University from 1950 until his death in 1969. As a professor, Mitchell served as the Chair of the Loyola Committee on Student Publications in 1968 and helped in the transition period during the merger of Loyola University and Marymount College when the campus newspaper, The Loyolan became a joint effort of the students of both schools. He died in Long Beach on November 27, 1969.
