About the Kenneth Kenison Papers
Nine letters and a New Year’s card written from China, eight to John “Ace” Nutter of
Beach Bluff, Massachusetts, and one to Nutter’s mother. The letters speak in very
general, if familiar and informal, terms about his time in China. Included are
drafts of some original poems and a copy of the Chungking
National Herald newspaper for June 19, 1944, printed on rice paper.
