The DS Collection


This collection has been acquired from the holdings of a Tallahassee resident and WWII veteran who, along with his brother, began collecting postcards during the war. This collection expanded to cards that he bought elsewhere. It also includes a small subset of stereocards. These postcards were acquired for this archive by Dr. Michael Neal.
