Biographical note Kinne, a native of Stearns, Ky., was an engineering student at Kentucky State University (now the University of Kentucky) and on the football and track teams when the United States entered World War I in 1917. He joined the American Expeditionary Forces and became a second lieutenant with the 99th Aero Observation Squadron. He flew on missions as an observer, gathering information to be used in artillery campaigns. His plane was shot down in September, 1918, and he and the pilot were listed as missing in action. Their bodies and the wreckage of the plane were not found until April, 1919. In 1933, Kinne's mother, Nola Miller Kinne Fogg, along with other mothers and widows of soldiers who had died overseas, went on a tour to France sponsored by the U.S. government to visit their loved ones' graves. Scope and Contents The Howard I. Kinne papers document his life as a student in Kentucky and soldier in the First World War. Included are letters from Kinne dating from 1912 to 1918 and photographs of other servicemen taken during his Army training in the States. Letters from Kinne's family and from his fellow servicemen discuss his Army service, his disappearance, and his death. The collection contains a scrapbook, with clippings, postcards, and photographs, and a journal kept by Mrs. Fogg during her trip to France in 1933.
