Subject: Camp Forrest
 

I collect old books from thrift stores & estate sales. The inscriptions can be interesting as are items left in them as bookmarks or mementos.

I came across one recently that I keep looking at & googling because I feel like there's a mystery or back story there.

The book is called The Strange Woman . It was signed by two men on the inside cover.

Natalias Micci and Clyde Schaeffer, 12/20/42 Camp Forest TN

Of course, it appears to be a Christmas gift given the date, but to whom?  The subject matter of the book ( a manipulative woman) could mean they are giving some advice to a friend?

Since they have different names, it doesn't seem like a gift to a relative - maybe it's to their superior officer?

Were they friends or just coworkers?

I can't find either man's name in relation to Camp Forrest online. 

While surfing the web, I came across your site. I'm attaching the inscription in case anyone remembers these men.
