Biographical Note

Grover Hickman Catt was born in Monticello, Miss. He attended Hinds Junior College and later joined the military. Catt eventually joined the 509th Bomb Wing of the United States Air Force (the unit formed to drop the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan) as a supply specialist. After World War II ended, Catt was one of a handful of soldiers assigned to fly home on the Enola Gay, the plane that dropped the atomic bomb.

Catt married Winnie Bethea in 1941. The two corresponded regularly during the time they were separated by Catt's military service.

Grover Catt graduated from the University of Mississippi School of Pharmacy in 1948. The Catts eventually operated a drugstore in Pascagoula, Miss.


Scope and Content Note

The collection includes correspondence of both Winnie and Grover Catt between 1940 and 1945. Boxes 1-6 and Boxes 7-14 are arranged chronologically by date of letter (postmark), as well as by number on letters as marked by the writers themselves. The collection contains code in letters; censored letters; information regarding conditions of the home front during the war; references to movies, music, and radio programs; information regarding women at home and at work, birth control, and pregnancy; Winnie Catt’s contraction/recovery from Bright’s Disease; and information regarding transportation by train, bus, and automobile.

The collection contains three boxes of photographs.
