The Jim Mooney Letters, held by the Archives of Appalachia at East Tennessee State University, consist of photocopies of 35 letters Mooney wrote to his brother Charles, mostly while he was serving in the United States Navy during World War II. The letters describe military life both in training and while at sea in the Pacific theater. Three letters written to his brother before the war discuss Mooney's baseball career and interests.
