Item Description:
Original letter, 7.5 x 10.5, has a paper clip mark at the corner, stapled to the corner of this letter is an article about Barney Roos and his development of the Jeep. This letter has a stamp " Received March 20, 1946, DG Roos " and is on the letterhead of " Milton Engineering, Detroit, Michigan, Thomas W. Milton, and is signed in pen, " Tom ". Apparently Tommy Milton was friends with Barney Roos ( Willys Overland Engineering VP ), and that is why he sent the attached article to him. Interesting content as apparently Tommy Milton was telling Roos that he had better get hotel reservations for the May 1946 Indianapolis 500 Race, " I was talking with Wilbur Shaw and he told me they are building new steel and concrete stands... " This letter was obtained from Willys Overland Jeep factory files.
