J. LAWTON COLLINS
J. Lawton Collins writes a letter of encouragement and gives a suggestion on how to introduce the study of the military in a high school setting.
Typed Letter Signed: "J Lawton Collins", 1p, 7¼x10½. No place, 1971 February 2. To Edmond D. Marino, Department of History, Chaney H.S., Youngstown, Ohio. In full: "Some time ago my nephew, Brigadier General James L. Collins, Jr., sent me a copy of your letter to him dated October and his reply thereto. As my nephew pointed out his father was Major General James L. Collins, my elder brother. Near the end of my nephew's letter he suggested that after your plans had firmed up a bit you might then write to me with respect to any specific ideas on which you thought I might be helpful. Meanwhile, and this is the first opportunity I have had to give your letter some serious thought, I do want to congratulate you on your idea of introducing into your high school some study of military history. I would suggest that you might use as a vehicle a study of four of our major wars rather than going abroad or embarking on a general study of the history of warfare. I am still a pretty busy man but if you should ever pass through Washington, and feel it would be helpful, I would be glad to discuss this suggestion with you. Best wishes for success in your studies, Sincerely yours," Major General Joseph Lawton Collins was Commander of the 25th Infantry Division which, in December 1942, landed as a relief force on Guadalcanal. He was part of General Omar Bradley's First Army in the Normandy assault as Commander of the VII Corps that spearheaded the breakout at St. Lô in July 1944. From 1949-1953, General Collins was Chief of Staff of the Army. Staple holes at upper left. Horizontal fold through signature. Otherwise, fine condition.
