The Muhlenberg Memories Project

Letter Readings

“Reading the letters, sharing them with family members of these alumni and hearing their memories over the last few years has been a privilege. Hearing the letters narrated by their peers 70 years later, having these talented theatre students experience this archival interaction of bringing history to life, has added a new dimension to the Muhlenberg Memories Project.”


Susan Falciani Maldonado, Special Collections & Archives Librarian

Below are the studio readings of the original letter and the paired response from a College administrator.
