Description
Papers belonging to World War I American nurse Camilla Treadwell.
Background
Camilla Treadwell was abroad when World War I was declared. She entered the service of the American Red Cross in Paris, France. Her work as a nurse on the field of battle, often near the front of the lines, was commended by the commanders of the allied armies, who bestowed on her the highest decorations, among them the cross of the French Legion of Honor. Treadwell also was made honorary corporal by a unit of the famous French "Blue Devils." She was wounded several times in action.
