World War Two correspondence of Major General Bernard Linn Robinson, United States Army Corps of Engineers in the Pacific
Theater, of Spokane, Washington. Most letters are from B.L. "Bunny" Robinson to his wife, Alice, both during the war and that
of occupied Japan in 1945.
Bernard L. Robinson (1901-1994) graduated from the military academy in 1920, going on to attend Engineer School within the
United States military. He married his second wife Alice Gunning (1901-1985) in 1939, after the death of his first wife, Lusinn
Barahian (1898-1939) earlier in the year, and the two lived together in Hawaii for a short time before Robinson was assigned
elsewhere. The two were living in Hawaii when Pearl Harbor was attacked. Robinson was on active duty during World War II,
and had various engineering assignments in the Pacific Theater between 1939 and 1945, which took him to Hawaii, Australia,
New Zealand, Japan, the Philippines, and New Guinea.
