The Pyle mss. II, 1921-1953, consist primarily of letters from journalist Ernest Taylor Pyle, 1900-1945, to his parents and aunt, written during Pyle's travels as a newspaper columnist and World War II correspondent. A poem written by Pyle while a schoolboy in Dana, Indiana is present, as well as three letters written to his family while he was a student at Indiana University. Other items include letters from various relatives, fellow journalists, and readers of his column, as well as a letter of October 21, 1884, from congressman Joseph Gurney Cannon to Pyle's grandfather Lambert Taylor. Pyle's travels are further documented by a photograph of him and his wife, with others, embarking on a trip of South America, and a map of South America with their various stops noted.
Correspondents in the collection are Joseph Gurney Cannon, Rosamund (Zuck) Peters Goodman, Jack Rohe Howard, Roy Wilson Howard, Poe (Siebolds) Jones, Lee Graham Miller, Ernest Taylor Pyle, Geraldine (Siebolds) Pyle, Lincoln Saxton, and Edward Reilly Stettinius.
A typescript copy of Pyle's March 31, 1942, column from The Washington Post and a typed inventory describing each item complete the collection.
