Oregon State Yank Collection, 1942-1945

Historical Note:

Elaine Kollins Sewell and Jane Steagall, OSC graduates, published the first Yank as a 4-page newspaper-style Christmas greeting with news and gossip about OSC men and women in the service. They received many letters praising the publication and asking for more. It was expanded to 16 pages and published quarterly through November 1945.
