Wendell Wilkie has died

Sunday, Oct. 8, 1944

Mommy and Daddy could hardly believe the news on the radio. Wendell Wilkie died today of a heart attack. He was only 52 years old. He was a Republican but the GOP loathed his support of Lend lease even though it kept the British war effort going after the fall of Dunkirk. Although proud of his German ancestry, he was an unswerving foe of Nazi fascism. Mommy and Daddy are very sad.
