fun facts, quotes, and pictures from history
Jack Fogarty served with the Army’s 98th Evacuation Hospital in the Pacific in World War II. He was also a pretty good artist. Fogarty also corresponded with his good friend John MacDonald’s wife, and illustrated the envelopes with scenes of her husband’s daily life. The men, and MacDonald’s wife Mary, remained friends for the rest of their lives. After her parents died, Meg MacDonald found 33 of those letters and donated them to the National Postal Museum.
