Paul B Hendrickson, was a veteran of the 33rd Division in World War I.

When he passed away in 1990, his daughter Betty (Hendrickson) Gill found neatly packed away in the family home 125 letters he wrote home during his time in service. The letters were to his mother and to the neighbor girl who after the war became his wife.

She also found a diary kept during the year he was in France and almost 300 postcards which were sent home either individually or in envelopes.

In addition, there were letters sent to him, negatives and prints taken at Camp Parker in Quincy, Illinois, and at Camp Logan in Houston, Texas, and maps he drew of both camps.

This historical legacy is slowly being added to this web page.
