Carolyn Dodge resided in Ellensburg, Washington and in the Badger Pocket area on a farm with her family and her letters describe her daily life as a farm wife and later as the wife of a potato broker in the Quincy Basin. Dodge also wrote letters to her cousin at her residences in Kittitas and Quincy, Washington, following her time in Ellensburg. The Dodge family moved to the Ellensburg area in 1929 from Montana when Boynton Dodge, Carolyn’s husband, started a job as a fresh fruit inspector for the State of Washington. The family farmed in the Kittitas Valley from 1944 until 1955, moving briefly to Kittitas before moving on to Quincy. All three of their sons, John, William, and Robert graduated from Central Washington State College of Education/Central Washington State College. The letters were donated by Carolyn Dodge’s son, Robert (Bob) Dodge, a 1959 graduate of Central Washington
