Abstract:

Correspondence concerns the Gorins and related families. Most letters are written by Mrs. Standiford Danforth Gorin and describe the life of an upper-middle class family in Louisville (Ky.). Topics of interest include her daily routines, news of family and friends, social occasions, clubs, church, and gossip. Her World War II. letters tell of wartimepractices of rationing, bond drives, entertaining soldiers, and volunteer work at the Red Cross. Gorin's sons, George, Lewis, Jr., and Standiford known as "Tank" are all U.S. servicemen and their World War II letters describe their participation in U.S. campaigns in Germany, Italy, France, and India. Earlier correspondence covers the U.S. Revolution, fugitive slaves, and Kentucky land transactions. Other materials examine the United Daughters of the Confederacy, the Confederate Veteran's Home in Pewee Valley (Ky.) and charges of mismanagement, the Orphan Brigade, Revolutionary War, General Artemas War, John Rogers, and the estate of Joseph Lewis Danforth. Miscellaneous items include a slave bill of sale, broadsides, valentines, newspaper clippings, and genealogical information.
