1920's Love Letters Elizabeth Lubke, Aurora College & Keith L.A. Ca

8 Letters from 1925 and 1926
Written by a fellow by the name of Keith, addressed 2679 Menlo Ave. , Los Angeles, Ca

Sent to Miss Elizabeth Lubke, Aurora College, Aurora, Illinois

Since Keith never used a last name I cant track who he was, I can find an Elizabeth Lubke in an Illinois census but not any record of who she married at this point, but somehow Keith’s letters to her wound up in California at a Swap Meet. So it makes me wonder if they ever married.

 Keith writes constantly about Elizabeth coming to see him in California, about how much he misses her, about classes and instructors and telling her to come to California for a teaching job, he keeps telling her to find ways to get money to come visit him, yet the fellow cant seem to find a way to get the money himself for this girl he misses so much.

I did google the address where he was staying and its now part of a Historic District and the actual house is pictured on the internet with the history of some people who owned it, Im not sure if this is who lived there when Keith was staying, but he mentions the people he lives with in a letter and them trying to teach him to play bridge. I just imagine him sitting him in a room of this house in the 1920′s writing one of these letters to Elizabeth.
