Eileen O’Connell, manager of the Special Collections Library, toured the home and library of World War II correspondent “champion of the common man” Ernie Pyle.

Ms. O’Connell also talked about Ernie Pyle’s work and the impact of his writings, including some of his original works from the Special Collections Library.
