Paul S. Burtness and Warren U. Ober were both professors at Northern Illinois University when they began researching the events surrounding the attack on Pearl Harbor and the war in the Pacific. Both men are U.S. Navy Veterans of World War II. Letters were written to a number of prominent military figures who were in power either at the time of the attack or shortly after America entered into the conflict. The letters, and subsequent research, have lead to a variety of publications over a fifty year period. (From GA 261 and University of Waterloo English at 50).
