Biography/History

In 1938 - 1939, Agnes Elizabeth Snyder (1921 -), wrote letters to her friend--later husband--John B. Crume (1920 -), a Louisvillian attending Harvard University. Ms. Snyder was a freshman at the University of Louisville where she was on the Cardinal staff, sang in student musical groups, and composed songs. Her discursive letters to Crume are peppered with popular slang of the day and document both student life at U of L and general conditions in Louisville in the immediate pre-World War II period. A collection of John Crume letters to Snyder, written in the years before their marriage in 1946, reflect the life of a soldier in Europe during World War II and later a foreign service trainee. The Crumes had one son and were later divorced.

In 1943, after having been graduated from the University of Louisville in 1941, Agnes Snyder began a stint as a reporter for the Louisville Courier-Journal. In that capacity, she wrote both general assignment stories and an extensive series on the role of area women in the war effort. Clippings of her articles are found in her papers, as well as a small collection ow WWII era postcards and war-time memorabilia.

In 1985, Agnes Snyder Crume worked as the senior editor of the Louisville Magazine. The Sesmer-Snyder Papers at the University Archives were created by Agnes Crume's mother and father.
