Here you will find letters, pamphlets, and news articles about depression scrip.  Most of the letters are direct requests from collectors during the depression era who had the foresight to try and preserve a piece of history.  Some of the letters are from people such as B.J. Lazar, W.O. Crosswhite, G.E. Miller, and Wallace H. Cathcart.  All these documents give a unique insight into the documentation behind depression scrip.  Lots of great reading in here...
