The Jesse M. Pollitt papers portray a young man’s experience of the phases of war training, stationing, and naval service of World War II, and the written relationship men maintained with their families. Specifically, correspondence between Pollitt and his mother Agnes Malone Pollitt during his service in the United States Marine Corps from 1943-1946. The letters document his experiences at boot camp at Parris Island, South Carolina and his subsequent postings in Washington, D.C. and North Carolina.
