Ruth G. Babcock was a resident of Glendale, California and the founder and president of Chapter 71 of the WAC Mothers' Association, an organization established to aid members of the Women's Army Corps wherever they served during World War II. The Ruth G. Babcock WAC Mothers' Association Collection primarily consists of administrative correspondence, reports, procedural documents, newsletters and news clippings, as well as WAC recruitment materials. Two items, one a group photograph, document the enlistment of Ruth's daughter Virginia. Another item documents the imprisonment of Ruth's son-in-law, Sherwin L. Barton in a German prisoner of war camp.
