Korean War Letter Writers

Jesse G. Dorsey worked at the Louisville Cement Company as the Recreation and Welfare Director. He started writing letters to former employees of the LCC who had joined the military during WWII and the Korean War. These people in turn wrote him back. Dorsey saved these letters and they are now property of the library. There is more than just letters. These folders contain pictures, postcards, baby announcements, wedding announcements, and other such items.

In July 2007 and July 2008, Charlestown-Clark County Public Library received LSTA grants for the purpose of digitizing the WWII letters and postcards in this collection. These images, which consist of 1606 letters and postcards, are accessible on the Indiana Memory website. Go to the Jesse G. Dorsey Collection of World War II Correspondence page to find out more. All of these folders are available for viewing at the Sellersburg Library.
