Mr. Stillwell enjoyed living a “world-wide” life vicariously through writing hundreds of letters throughout the 1940s. His letters afforded him the opportunity to collect an array of autographs, photos, flags, military patches and correspondence. This Jackie Robinson signed postcard and letter is just a small piece of what his incredible collection has to offer!
