Description

During World War I, Thomas Scott was the headmaster of the Normal School, what is now the University of Southern Mississippi, in Hattiesburg, MS. Scott and his wife had two sons at the front, Lynwood and Percy. As with the Swan Family letters, both sides of the correspondence survive. Unsurprisingly, schoolmaster�s sons Lynwood and Percy both have neat and tidy handwriting. This item was included in the Scrawl and Order exhibit, http://lib.msstate.edu/exhibits/past/.
