FF2 contains materials from Dr. Sutter's time in the United States Army during World War II, including his immunization register, a news clipping, an ID card and berthing card for his trip overseas, and a Christmas card from the 17th Armored Engineer Battalion.

FF3 contains licenses, issued by various levels of government, licensing Mr. Sutter to practice medicine in Orlando.
