Dear Ms. Ciampi,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the series General Records, 1919 - 1999 in the Records of the American National Red Cross (ANRC Collection) that includes a file unit titled Salvation Army Activities in World War II which may contain the information you seek. For access to the series, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also located the series Photographs of American Military Activities, ca. 1918 - ca. 1981 in the Records of the Office of the Chief Signal Officer (Record Group 111) that include 10 digitized items for “Salvation Army Girls” during WWI. There may be other photographs that have not been digitized. For access to non-digitized photos, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Still Pictures (RDSS) via email at email@example.com.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT2 and RDSS. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
We searched online and located several articles and other publications that might be of relevance to your research. They include:
- The Five Women Who Shaped Salvation Army History
- The Women Who Fried Donuts and Dodged Bombs on the Front Lines of WWI
- Doughnuts, Salvation Army, and World War I
In addition, we suggest that you contact the Salvation Army Archives and Research Center for more information.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
