Travel arrangements for Carolyn King from Europe back to the United States, 1900.
Before high speed jets, Travelocity and Orbitz, Americans heading across the Atlantic booked passage on steamships by letter or telegram. This letter from New York travel agency Oelrichs and Co. to Charles King in Milwaukee discusses travel arrangements for King’s daughter, Carolyn King, on the steamship Kaiser Wilhelm II. Carolyn King studied at the Sorbonne in Paris for several years before returning to Milwaukee in 1900.
