Stocker Family (1918-1924)
In the Stocker letters we are treated to 33 letters from 1918 to 1929. Called the Stocker letters after the series most frequent writer, Alice Stocker. Alice, her husband, and son are living in New York in 1924 when they are sent on a European Tour by her parents. The family travel, photograph and write home to her parents from such exotic places as England, France, and Switzerland.
