Description This collection consists of correspondence of the George Matthew and Nora (Sullivan) Love family of Bowling Green, Kentucky. A good portion of the earlier correspondence is between Ruel Love and various family members while he is away from Bowling Green. Of particular interest are his letters from the Panal Canal Zone. Corollary to these letters are letters from Richard Curd Pope Thomas to George Matthew Love reporting on Ruel's conduct and employment while in the Canal Zone. The other signficant group of letters dates from the late-1940s when George Marshall, Sr. and wife Margaret are in Hollywood, Florida, trying to establish a photography studio and hobby shop. This studio and hobby shop was in operation from 1947 to 1948. These letters are chiefly written by Margaret (Pat) to her sister-in-law, Margaret (Love) Davenport (Sis).
