Letters Home: The A.F. "Frank" Smith Story
November 11, 2021 - May 28, 2022
Frisco resident A.F. “Frank” Smith served in the U.S. military in World War I and, like many other soldiers, he and his family exchanged letters through the postal service. 54 of Frank’s letters were discovered in 2011 and will be on display at the Frisco Heritage Museum starting November 11 – coinciding with Veterans Day. Frank’s letters from the war’s frontlines show his love and affection for his family, and his positive attitude in the worst of situations.
The photos and artifacts in this exhibit are courtesy of the Cates Family, and Betty Smith Muse. In 2011, a box was found containing Frank’s letters, photographs, and other documents from his time in the Army. They were given to Frank’s niece Betty Lou Smith Muse who offered them to Frank’s step-grandson Michael B. “Mike” Cates, a retired Army veteran himself. Mike and his wife Linda worked to preserve and organize the letters, photos, and other related materials from the collection.
