Military History – WWII

Open post – History?
I'm now in possession of a number of things that might be of interest if I knew where… So this is open, hoping to find someone who knows about US military history…?

I have…all WWII vintage

-my father's letters home. He was in Italy, mainly in Rome and Florence – engineers. He was in the square when Mussolini and Petrachi were… killed.

-many of his pictures…

-my mother's pictures, some of her letters. She was in Africa, front line hospital, ward nurse. She was the first nurse invalided home from the African theatre (and therefore went on bond drives all over the country). I believe we have the records of her discharge trial, as well.

I'd like them to go to a museum…? History department…? Perhaps someone studying the role of women in warfare would be interested in my mother's things, if nothing else? I'd rather they went to someone who was interested in them, who can use them…
