Scope and Contents Note

This collection contains the letters of the Paul R. Litzke family in Little Rock, the bulk of which consists of correspondence between Paul R. Litzke and his daughter, Paulina, while the latter was a student at the University of California, Berkeley. The correspondence makes brief mention of economic and weather conditions in Little Rock during the 1930s, but is primarily concerned with family matters and Paulina Litzke's experiences in California.

The Arkansas History Commission in Little Rock, Arkansas also holds the papers of Paul R. Litzke and his family, titled: Litzke-Allen-Morris Papers.


Biographical Note

Paul Litzke began his career as a salesman for a national munitions company (possibly Peters Cartridge Co.) around 1901. Litzke and his wife had two daughters, Katherine and Paulina, and had established residence in Little Rock by 1912. Mrs. Litzke died on 1923 November 24. Litzke engaged in other business activities besides his sales career. He was involved with the Patent Decoy Duck Collar Company and a movie theatre venture in Phillips County, and he rented rooms as well. As an avid sportsman, Litzke was a member of the Arkansas Wildlife Federation and was instrumental in the construction of Lake Conway. Litzke died ca. 1944-1954.

Paulina Litzke was born October 10, 1906. She attended Little Rock Junior College and Washington University before receiving her Physical Education degree from the University of California, Berkeley. She returned to Little Rock in 1932, and worked for Little Rock Junior College, the Arkansas Employment Security Division, and Arkansas Children's Hospital.
