In recognition of the 100th anniversary of World War I, the Drew County Historical Society on October 12 will host a presentation on the new World War I collection recently donated to the Drew County Museum.
Museum board members Connie Mullis and Zack Tucker will discuss a collection of letters and photo scrapbooks documenting the war experiences of Monticello native and World War I soldier Douglas Pope. The significance of other war-related memorabilia and artifacts in the museum’s collection will also be reviewed.
The event will be held at the Drew County Museum on October 12 at 2:30 p.m. The museum is located at 404 South Main Street in Monticello.
