Training Camp Correspondence
Carlisle, Pennsylvania / Augusta, Georgia, 1953. Very Good. A collection of 37 letters and telegrams addressed to Private Robert M. Frey during his basic training at Camp Gordon in Georgia in the immediate aftermath of the Korean War. All items are very good or better with some tears from opening, light age toning, and folds from being mailed.Robert M. Frey enlisted in the Army at the end of 1953 after having completed his law degree at the Dickinson School of Law at Penn State University. The letters are from various relatives, including his parents, and friends between September and December of that year. His sister, Charlotte, who refers to herself as "Charlie," writes: "With your legal and college training you should be able to get a pretty good job - why not G-2 or something dangerous and sneaky? Does every recruit have to go through the same basic program? (My achin' feet!)." During this time Frey took and passed the Pennsylvania Bar Exam and opted to stay with the Army for the minimum 20 months instead of three years with a commission so that he could start his practice sooner. Many of the letters are congratulations from colleagues and friends on his success passing the State Bar Exams which only had a 49% pass rate that year. Frey would go on to practice in Carlisle, Pennsylvania creating the firm Frey & Tiley. In 1985 was appointed to the board of trustees for the Dickinson School of Law, later serving as its President from 1993-1998.
