Subseries 14.3: Family correspondence, 1930-2008, (Portions restricted) documents Littell’s efforts to maintain contact with his parents, siblings and other family members, as well as his wife, Harriet, and their children during times of separation. Littell left his home town of Mount Vernon, Iowa when he was twenty years old and he spent most of his adult life travelling from one opportunity to another throughout the United States and abroad. The Littells wrote letters to each other that chronicled their lives, touching on everything from their professions, to their opinions and/or participation in social and political movements or ideas, to the mundane details of daily life. Letters between the different family members are comingled and arranged in chronological order. Letters between Franklin and Harriet Littell and their four children are maintained separately.
