WWII V-mail in the Jimmy Ley Collection

James “Jimmy” Ley attended Grinnell College for two years before enlisting in the U.S. Army Air Force in 1942. An extensive collection of correspondence written by Ley during his time at Grinnell and in the Army Air Force, as well as personal items, photographs, and military documents were donated by members of his family to the college archives in the fall of 2014.
