A bulletin issued by the War Council of the American Red Cross in 1918.
This bulletin serves as a report to the American people on the activities of the American Red Cross (ARC). It begins with a quote from President Woodrow Wilson. The quote, along with the first two paragraphs, stand in sharp contrast to the original, neutral mission of the ARC under the leadership of Clara Barton. Under the management of the War Council, the ARC was now the “mobilized heart and spirit of the American people,” an organization dedicated to serving “Americans in all parts of the world [who] were determined to help their home country.” The bulletin includes brief information on supplies and money collected during fundraising campaigns.
