Syracuse Post-Standard: Preserving Tracy Sugarman’s

Syracuse Post-Standard: Preserving Tracy Sugarman’s WW II Work
Todays Syracuse Post-Standard takes a look at Wednesday’s Library of Congress ceremony honoring Westporter Tracy Sugarman and the letters, drawings and watercolors he sent to his wife during World War II.

They sat preserved, but forgotten in the couple’s basement and on Wednesday become part of American history.

“You worry about your work when you’re about to leave,” Sugarman, 81, told the newspaper from his Westport home. “This way it’ll be part of the whole permanent archive. It’ll be there as long as the country is.”

Sugarman, who grew up in Syracuse and studied illustration at Syracuse University, donated some 400 letters to the Veterans History Project, part of the American Folklife Center in the Library of Congress.
