Hodges University News

History aficionados and military veterans in Southwest Florida will have the opportunity to learn and participate in a unique event featuring a collection of war letters written by United States soldiers throughout history. Hosted by Hodges University’s Frances Pew Hayes Center for Lifelong Learning, best-selling author Andrew Carroll will present The Million Letters Campaign on November 14 from 1:00-2:30 p.m. at Hodges’ Naples campus.

Carroll, who is the director of the Center for American War Letters (CAWL) at Chapman University, is traveling the country to seek 1,000,000 war-related letters from every conflict in United States history.

Along with showing audience members extraordinary, original letters from CAWL’s collection, Carroll will discuss his latest book, “My Fellow Soldiers: General John Pershing and the Americans Who Helped Win the Great War.”

“Andrew Carroll is preserving the part of American history known only by veterans and their families. In bringing this project to Naples and to the multitude of veterans within our community, these letters open a window into the personal experiences of the bravest amongst us,” said Katharine Sittler, assistant for the Frances Pew Hayes Center for Lifelong Learning.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in the first Hodges University viewing of original photographs donated to the university by the late Hodges professor Anthony D'Amore Sr.
