Dorothy Walsh looks through old letters addressed to her late husband John Evangelist Walsh while sitting at his desk inside their home in Monroe. The books on his desk are flagged with notes and citations for a book on Pearl Harbor, one of Walsh's completed but as-yet unpublished manuscripts. (Times photo: Anthony Wahl)
