Includes correspondence from the seven Rube brothers and their family members during World War II. They write of their activities
and experiences, both from Europe and the South Pacific and the home front.
The Rube brothers--David, Conrad, Scott, William, Henry, John, and Peter--were from Fresno, California and all served in World
War II. According to one newspaper clipping found in the collection, the brothers believed they held a national record as
the largest group of siblings serving in the same war at the same time. At the war's conclusion, all seven brothers were alive.
