Love Letters from Walt to Erline, 1940-1946


The following scanned letters from Walter LeGrand "LeGrand" Whipple to Erline Atkinson are in three main sequences:

  1. June-December 1940: Letters written from Tooele and Wendover, Utah (where LeGrand was earning money for his mission) to Erline. The two had met at a dance in Logan, Utah, in February 1940. They dated while LeGrand completed his freshman year at the Utah Agricultural College (today's Utah State University) in Logan. Erline was living with her grandmother, Anine Mantine Deem Law.
  2. 1941-1943: Letters written while LeGrand served as a missionary in the North Central States Mission of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Although the mission was headquartered in Minneapolis, LeGrand spent most of those two years in Roundup and Columbus, Montana.
  3. 1945-1945: LeGrand joined the U.S. Army on May 1, 1945. Basic training was in Camp Wolters, Texas. World War II ended as he was sailing from Camp Lewis, Washington, to Japan. He served in the Signal Corps of the Army of Occupation. While serving in Army, he was called by his first name, Walter. Later in life he was known as "Walt."

Transcriptions of many of these letters are available here.
