Abstract

The article explores women from Kansas who died in military service from influenza or its complications during World War I. The women were reportedly military nurses, civilian relief workers, civilian nurses, and Red Cross nurses. The casualties include Grace Hershey, Mary L, Bair, and Edith Berdena Hokanson. Topics include the expectation that female nurses participate in the war effort, the influenza epidemic in 1918, and the relationship between Red Cross nurses and the U.S. military. [UNC LIBRARY]
