Virginia Shewalter Letters Collection

Virginia Shewalter Letters Collection

Midpointe Library Systems

The Virginia Shewalter Letters Collection consists of the personal correspondence of Virginia Shewalter written home while she served in the Women's Army Auxiliary Corps (WAAC) and the Women's Army Corps (WAC) from 1942 to 1945. The letters describe the experiences of Shewalter while she served at home and abroad. During her military service, she was stationed in England and France and rose to the rank of Captain. Born on July 14, 1916, in Dayton, Ohio, she was the second of three daughters born to John L. and Mabel Shewalter. She graduated from Union Township High School in West Chester and, eventually, Miami University, where she received her Bachelor of Science in Education. After the war, Shewalter worked at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and  the Personnel Department of the Veterans Administration Hospital in Cincinnati, and later she taught English at Lakota High School (Ohio). The letters have been fully transcribed and are full-text searchable. This collection was originally curated by the West Chester Historical Society.  It is through their generosity and dedication to preserving local history that we are able to make this digital collection available.
