A 1919 American Red Cross press release about an award given to African American volunteer Rev. R. H. Windsor.
This press release announces the American Red Cross (ARC) award of a twelve-star service pin to Reverend R. H. Windsor, a “zealous Red Cross worker” from Rayville, Louisiana.

Du Bois collected this press release, likely for use in a book to be titled The Black Man in the Wounded World.
