Scope and Contents: The Otto Schultz Collection is entirely in German and includes 19 letters and 1 piece of ephemera. The letters were all written between January 2, 1916 and April 29, 1917, mostly to Otto's wife, Emma, in Moringen. As the letters begin on January 3, 1916, Otto writes home from the Front that he has been assigned the job of painting signs. During this time he was on the Eastern front in Russia. He was in Company 1, 2nd Landsturm Infantry Battalion Osterode XX 9, Division 11. Later that year, Otto became very ill and was admitted to the military hospital in Poland on August 7, 1916, where he remained until the beginning of January 1917. The piece of ephemera is a program for the Christmas celebration of 1916 in the military hospital.
