General Note

From the Series:

The Family Correspondence Series primarily consists of letters sent by Martin S. Quigley to his parents while he was on missions in Great Britain, Ireland and Italy during World War II. His letters from Ireland are particularly interesting with references to meetings with Eamon de Valera and other Irish notables. In Italy, Quigley was not able to be as open about his activities in letters home, but he does tell of a personal audience with Pius XII and discusses general conditions in Italy and neighboring areas. Also contained in this series are all other original materials from the war period contained in the collection, including original State Department pamphlets, wartime Italian banknotes and some letters between Quigley and members of the Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America, such as Will Hays and Carl E. Milliken.
