RESEARCH BITS AND PIECES

BACK

The following items are the result of sorting out the late P.M. Pulles' archive consisting of years of correspondence with WWII veterans and fellow researchers.
We will be adding as we work our way through the archives.
In this way, we hope to be a channel for family members and researchers to find additional information.

When available, we will always mention the source of the information. In case you find a source is missing or you know the data is incorrect or incomplete, we invite you to
