Name of creator
Evelyn Mae Kapitain was the sister of Charles G. Kapitain. Charles was born 15 August 1888 in Toronto, and served with the American Expeditionary Services (AEF) for two years during World War I. The AEF was created in May 1917 as an addition to the American force in France. Charles was a member of the 303rd Engineer unit of the AEF from May 1918 until 19 June 1919. The AEF fought two notable battles in France from September to October 1918: St. Mihiel, and the Battle of Argonne. These two operations saw the Allied forces recover more than two hundred square miles of French territory from the Germans.
Scope and content
The fonds contains correspondence between Evelyn Mae Kapitain and her brother Charles G. Kapitain during his time served in the AEF. Also included are military associated letters and documents, newspaper clippings, two German postcards found in the Argonne Woods and US military postcards to Evelyn Kapitain from an unknown individual.
