This collection contains approximately 50 letters from Ch (1st Lt.) Paul Sheldon Johnson, AEF (YMCA) to his family during the First World War. Also included are narratives, a bound collection of photocopies, and one lunch menu.
Chaplain (First Lieutenant) Paul Sheldon Johnson, American Expeditionary Force (YMCA) (7/15/1891 - 1/30/1980) was born in Na-Au-Say, Kendall County, Illinois to Anna Mary French and Reverend Oliver C. "O.C." Johnson, a Presbyterian pastor in Hot Springs, South Dakota. According to the donor, O.C. Johnson suffered from clinical depression that left him unable to pastor his church at times, some of which was discussed in Mrs. Johnson's book, The Making of A Minsters Wife (D. Appleton-Century Company, Inc. publishers, copyright 1933 by the Christian Herald Association, Inc.).
