Nancy Morris Artifacts

Nancy Morris’s daughter, Terri, wrote an essay about the Second World War in her junior year of high school at Saint Andrew’s School in Middletown, Delaware. Her essay, written in 1978, revolved around the experiences of prisoners-of-war in German POW camps. In the process of writing her essay, Terri got in contact with four individuals who were held captive in these camps and asked them to document their experience. These four individuals were: Chaplain David Haxton Carswell Read,  Staff Sergeant Henri Adrien Richardson, Corporal William Theodore Blackiston, and Technical Sergeant Joseph R. Smith.

Nancy Morris’s artifacts include Terri’s essay about POWs, letters of communication between Terri and her interviewees, questionnaire and responses about life in German POW camps, and an audio recording from David H.C. Read and his experience as a prisoner-of-war.
