Artist, World War II Veteran (d. 1995).
This collection contains 300 original ink, pencil, pastel, and chalk drawings depicting people, customs, wildlife, and buildings of Hungary, many of which were made into postcards, included in Pecsenye's "Hungarian Coloring Book", or intended for other projects that never went to publication. Additional works represent other European countries as well as Toledo, Ohio ca. early 1900's. In addition to these drawings a large amount of correspondence in the form of V-Mail, newsclippings and other memorabilia dating from Pecsenye's service in Europe during World War is included in the collection. These materials chronicle in both words and pictures the events of the war from Pecsenye's perspective.
