Norman Archibald and Hazel Archibald Draper papers, 1895-1959 (bulk 1918-1935).

These papers, photographs, and scrapbooks document the intersecting experiences of a Seattle brother and sister serving in France during World War I. Through collected newspaper clippings, telegraphs, notes, and photographs, mostly from 1918, emerges a picture of a young aviator captured by the Germans in France and the dedication of his sister who, while working tirelessly entertaining GIs in France, continued to search for her captured younger brother. Additional materials fill out the portrait of Hazel Archibald Draper as an ambitious and successful pianist and songwriter, and of Norman Archibald making his mark as a successful author, with his first hand account of his wartime experience, which was reviewed positively in newspapers nation-wide.
