Katherine Yocum Collection

by Yocum, Katherine (1922 – 1938)

2 boxes (0.75 linear feet)

This collection consists of personal correspondence of Katherine Yocum from 1922-1938. Most of the correspondence was between Yocum and Nelson Burns. The letters begin when Yocum and Burns were freshmen at Bethany College, West Virginia and follow their, often tumultuous, relationship over the next four years. Many of the letters are addressed to Yocum at her parent's house in Steubenville, Ohio and follow Burns' work and school career through Ohio, Indiana and Iowa. The letters contain details of 1920's University life, family and work through their courtship, engagement and eventual breakup. While the bulk of the collection is letters to Katherine Yocum from Nelson Burns, it also contains some of Yocum's responses as well as letters to and from Yocum's parents and brothers, Floyd and Julian, as well as letters to Yocum from Bob Salmon.
