a heritage for posterity, the records of patriotic services rendered voluntarily l)> tiie 
women of Davidson County in the greatest war that has ever been staged in history. 
To these women this publication owes its existence. 

The work of compilation began immediately after the close of ihi' war while 
memory was fresh, in spite of the fact that prices were inflated. Howt-ver, at this 
time it was possible to secure a more complete and accurate record. The council 
members, fired with the true spirit of patriotism and possessing the dauntless courage 
and supreme capacity for endurance which characterized our fighting forces in 
battle, steadfastly held to the determination of accomplishing their purpose. They 
originated their own ways and means and overcame almost insurmountable diffi- 
culties in accomplishing their aims, riicy were well aware, when they assumed this 
responsibility, that the cost of produclioii would exceed the receipts of sales, yet they 
continued the fight with "conspicuous bravery."' At the final mesting, when the fact 
wa? announced that sufficient funds were in the bank to begin publication, the signing 
of the contract with the publishers occasioned a rejoicing among these sponsors 
similar to that occasioned by the first news of the signing of the Armistice. 

The "Distinguished Service Cross"' merited by the women of the Advisory Coun 
cil is the satisfaction that they have passed on to future generations a record of the 
])art their ancestors plaved in the first war known in history where women were 
tirafted into service. Not one woman whose name appears in connection with the 
compiling or publishing of this volume, which required months and monthj. of labor, 
has received any compensation for her services. 

The expense of the Gold Star illustrations, of the dedication pages, of the scrap- 
of-paper illustration, of the memorial for women World War workers, of the frontis- 
jiieie and of many other illustrated pages of this volume was borne by the Advisory 
('.(.uncil in addition to the cost of publication. They purchased a number of 
volumes and presented them to many Davidson County mothers, whose sons paid the 
Supreme Sacrifice, to Libraries of Tennessee and to National Headquarters of the 
organizations represented in this book. T!ie earnest endeavor of these patriotic 
women to "carry on," regardless of toil or sacrifice, justified and encouraged the 
compiler of this book to "finish tlie job." 

If there are any honors to accrue therefrom I would like to share them with 
each council member. Their loyalty, their unselfish devotion, their utmost con- 
fidence and eager willingness to assist during the struggles that naturally accompany 
a gigantic efl'ort of this character, afforded the writer the support necessary through- 
out the long period of compilation and publication.

Every possible efl'ort was made by the compiler and Advisory Council of lliis 
volume to obtain the record of each fallen hero of Davidson County in the World 
War. Repeated visits to the homes were made; letters were sent; numerous adver- 
tisements were placed in the Daily Press; and various other means were employed. 
After four years of volunteer service spent in this work, we herein submit such 
records as it was possible to obtain, the information liavinp been given by the

\ille City Schools; and was among the first to answer his country's call. He volun- 
teered for service at Nashville, April, 1917, with Troop A, 1st Tennessee Cavalry, 
uhich was recruited by Captain Bruce Douglas in the early stages of the war. 

Private Lee's one desire was to get into active service as quickly as possible. 
Fearing the organization he was with would be delayed, by request, he was honorably 
discharged by Captain Douglas and reenlisted December 12, 1917, with the United 
States Marine Corps, going immediately to Paris Island, S. C, for training. 

After a short period of preparation Private Lee was chosen for duty on foreign 
fields, due to his willingness to perform well any line of duty that might hasten his 
progress to the front lines. He sailed in March. lOli!. willi the 2()th Conqiaiu. .ith 
U. S. Marines. 

A letter written by Private Lee to Mrs. Hamby on Mother's Dav. 191 <!, gave 
joyful expression of the fact that he would soon be "scrapping with the Huns." In 
less than a month his desire was granted, which resulted in the sacrifice of his life. 
He was killed in action June 7, 1918, at Chateau Thierry. 

Private Lee received a citation from the French Government, signed by Major- 
General Petain, and one from the United States Army, signed by General John J. 
Pershing. 

Mrs. Hamby receixed main communications from her son's comrades, from 
highest to lowest rank, in wliicli they referred to Private Lee's bravery and po])ularity. 

Private Lee's body was later brought to Nashville and was laid to rest in Mt. 
Olivet Cemeterv. at Nashville. 



1st Lieut. Jvmes Simmons Timothy, son of Mr. and Mrs. Patrick H. Timothy, 
residents of Nashville, Tenn., was the first officer of Tennessee to give his life on 
ihe battlefield. He was born in Nashville, November 18. 1892; prepared for college 
at St. Mary's College in Maryland; and entered Vanderbilt University in September, 
1912, graduating in the Engineering Department in 1916. At the time of his en- 
listment he was Assistant Paymaster of E. I. Du Pont de Nemours. Wilmington. Del. 

Lieutenant Timothy volunteered his services in the World War. August 29. 1917, 
at the Officers' Training Camp, Plattsburg Barracks, N. Y., where he ranked as a 
second lieutenant. He was soon commanded overseas, sailing January 12, 1918. 

I pon reaching France Lieutenant Timothy entered a French war college, where 
he took tlie examinations for the regular army and passed with high honors. Soon 
thereafter he was made a first lieutenant. 

In March, 1918, he was placed in command of a platoon under Captain Bailey 
M. Coffinberg, of the Medical Corps, near Verdun. 

On May .31, 1918, he was sent to Chateau Thierry. While there he was badly 
gassed and was sent to a base hospital. After leaving the hospital he was temporarily 
assigned to the 80th Company, 6th Marines in Belleau Woods. 

On June 14, 1918, Lieutenant Timothy led his men — two hundred in number — 
"over the top" in the fierce engagement at Bois de Belleau. He was one of eight 
fortunate enough to return from this encounter. 

Later the same day. while sitting outside his dugout, he was struck in the back 
by shrapnel and his death resulted in about fifteen minutes. As he was dvina 
comrades heard him murmur: "Into Thy Hands, my Lord. I give my soul." This 
was evidence of his readiness to meet his Maker. His body now lies in Mt. Calvarv 
Cemeterv. at Nashville. 

Lieutenant Timothy died on the date of his brother's (Captain P. H. Timofhv 
f 15)

Others lie on tlie ledye, at the water's edge, 

To drink from the pool of death. 
And lingering, long for the mirrored face — 

Stoop and pause on its every breath — 
And bend to its lips — and are lost in the depths— 

Fof a kiss is the tool of Death — 

And some leap to the pool as an unknown joy. 

And are lost in the orchid spray 
That drenches .imi -Ii..vmis ihe weeping flowers 

That perfuiiir ilir I. K way. 

And the ripple^ 'lir, ,i^ jll ililngs die 

Like Love, \\lii(li lives hut a day. 

So, all men seek the purple pool; 

Some are sent by treacherous tongue; 
Some go as a prodigal, going to his home; 

Some follow a siren's song; 
For all things die, as all things must. 

At the toll of some sunken gong.

Slimmer of 1916. 

Lieut. John 0\ert(in \iilunteered his services on the same day the I nited States 
entered the World War, April 6, 1917. Soon after, when the schools and colleges 
were requested to name ten students each for commissions as second lieutenants in 
(he L'. S. Marine Corps, Lieutenant Overton was one of the ten named hv President 
Hadley of Yale. 

On Mav 21. 1917. Lieutenant Overton was commissioned Second Lieutenant of 
the U. S. Marine Corjis at the Brocjklyn Navy Yard, and was called into active 
service at Winthrop. Md. In July, 1917, he was transferred to Quantico, Va., where 
he entered the LI. S. Marine Officers' School, and graduated three months later. On 
November 10. 1917. he was assigned to 119th Company, 1st Replacement Battalion,

course at the First Army Corps School at Gondecourt, graduating June 1. 1918. 
In the files of the Yale Bureau in Paris were preserved some of Lieutenant Overton's 
examination papers taken at the end of May, 1917. giving him exceptionally high 
official ratings. 

LTpon completing his training course at Gondecourt. he was innnediately assigned 
work with the 12nd French Chausseurs in the Vosges sector. He had in his pos- 
session the "■Alpine Imi\\." the insignia of that great fighting squad of '"Blue Devils." 
On January 15. I'M'', oiic of his French comrades, in an address on "War and 
Friendship."" paid him ati eloquent tribute. 

Lieutenant Overton was transferred at his own request to active service at the 
front, and on June 14, 1918, he was assigned to the 80lh Company, 6th Marines, 
with which he fought at Belleau Wood and Chateau Thierry. The night of July 
17. 1918. the Marines arrived at Soissons, and next morning the regiment joined 
in the great offensive under General Mangin of the 10th French Army. Lieutenant 
Overton was killed in action during this offensive. On July 1. 1918. he was pro- 
moted to the rank of First Lieutenant, LT. S. Marine Corps, but the notification ar- 
rived after his death. 

The following is an extract from a sketch of Lieutenant Overton in the Yale 
World War Memorial volume, giving details of his death: 

'■On the morning of July 19. 1918, First Lieutenant John W. Overton ('Johnny 
Overton of Yale and the Marine' I was killed while leading his men in desperate 
attack on the enemy near Vierzy. A fragment of high explosive shell striking him 
in the heart brought instant death. By his side was one of his closest Yale friends, 
a fellow lieutenant in the Marines. 

"'I had just said "■hello" to him in the attack a minute before he was killed.' 
says this friend, ■when he was typi( a! Johnny, full of life and did not know xvhat 
fear was.' " 

That afternoon his friend burled him where he fell, about a mile from Merzy. 
His liody was later removed to tcm|iorary cemetery 594, American battle area, at 
Parcy-Ligny. in the department of Aisne. and on May 16. 1919, to the permanent 
cemetery at Nissy-aux-Bois. where a memorial service in his honor was held. 

Lieutenant Overton was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross posthumously. 
The following is the citation which accompanied this reward:

of the county in World War work. He, too, was a descendant of heroes of other 
wars and was one of the most beloved and influential citizens in Tennessee. His 
son's World War services, so bravely rendered, was a source of great pride to him.

will never be "unknowii" to those who knew him and will ever be cherished in the 
hearts of the people of Davidson County throughout endless generations.

ary 5, 1874. For eighteen years previous to his enlistment in the World War he 
was a resident of Durlian, Natal, South Africa, where he was engaged as an agent 
for a large shipping company. Private Wasserman had had military training as 
a member of the Imperial Light Horse during the Boer War. His love for the land 
of his birth and the American flag caused him to give up his business career in a 
foreign country and return to his former home, when his country became involved 
in the World War. He enlisted the day America entered war, April 6, 1917, and 
was attached to Company A, 3rd Infantry. His death occurred January 10, 1918, 
at Gouzeaucourt, France, and he was buried in a military cemetery near that place. 
Private Wasserman came of a well-known Davidson County family. Nashville 
citizens feel a special pride in his patriotism and loyalty to America. Private Was- 
serman was a successful young Inisiness man. but his duty to his country was his 
first thought. 

PvT. James William Turbeville was born on the Mill Creek Valley Road, in 
Davidson County, Tenn., in November, 1891. He was the son of James K. and 
Marv Minton Turbeville and brother of Miss Mary and G. R. Turbeville, of David- 
son Countv. He received his high school education at Hume-Fogg High School, at 
Nashville, Tenn. He was inducted into the service of his country March 20. 1918, 
at Nashville, and was sent to Camp Gordon, Ga., where he was in training for only 
two weeks when he was sent to Camp Upton. N. Y. After a week in this camp be 
sailed for overseas and was trained for a month in a French camp. He participated 
in the engagements of the Toul, Lorraine, St. Mihiel and Pont-a-Mousson sectors, 
and was killed in action in the St. Mihiel drive. September 12. 1918. 

Private Turbeville fought in more battles than many who were in service much 
longer. His military record is a source of pride to Tennesseans. and especially to 
Davidson County citizens, where his family is well known and prominently con- 
nected and where he had many friends. 

PvT. Joseph W. Wilkinson was born at Joelton, Tenn.. February 2. 1891. His 
parents, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas J. Wilkinson, reside at Joelton. He was inducted 
into World War service September 22, 1917, at Nashville, Tenn. He was the victim 
of an accident while in training, from which he died December 3, 1917, in a govern- 
ment camp. His remains were brought to Joelton to rest in his native State. He 
was first attached with Company G, 327th Infantry, but was later transferred to 
Battery B, 317th Field Artillery, with which organization he w-as attached at the 
time of his death. Private Wilkinson's short service was well performed, and he 
was considered a model young man in the community in which he lived, and also 
in the army camp. 

PvT. Lyclrcl's M. Walton was the son of Air. and Mrs. B. T. Walton, of Nash- 
ville. He was born at Lexington, Ky., in 1893. He was inducted into World War 
service June 27, 1918. and received military training at Camp Gordon. Ga.. and 
Aberdeen, Md. He w-as one of the many victims of the influenza and pneumonia 
epidemic, from which he died October 6. 1918. while in an army training camp. 
He was of a prominent and patriotic Davidson County family and was a vouns; man 
with many noble traits of character. He was first attached to the l.'i7th Depot 
Brigade, at Camp Gordon. Ga., but was a member of the Ordnance Department at 
Aberdeen Proving Grounds, Md.. at the time of his death.

at Soissoiis. He was awarded hvci |icisiinal cilaliuiis feu (li>liiii;iii-liril service. He 
was killed in action while liuhliim lo|- U(jild (leinoria< v in lln- m.lid lialtle of the 
Soissons sector, July 19, 191o. He was buried in the American Cemetery at Floisy, 
Aisne, France. Sergeant Warren's fearlessness on the battlefield and his ability as 
a soldier was often commented upon by officers and comrades of the A. E. F. 

PVT. John Walker Wecer was Jjom in Davidson County. Tenn.. December 24. 
1892, and was the only son of John Walker, deceased, and Maude Johnson Weber, 
of Nashville, Tenn. He was among the first volunteers to answer the call to arms 
after the United States entered the World War. He entered Camp Bowie, Fort 
Worth, Texas, for training, and was a member of Company 112. .'^Cth Field Ar- 
tillery. While in training at Camp Bowie he was injured in an explosion of a 
trench mortar, from which he died May 8. 1918. 

The following is an extract taken from a letter written by Private Weber's cap- 
tain to his mother after his death, which expresses fully the sentiment of all who 
knew John Weber, both as a soldier and as a private citizen: 

"He was an admirable and model soldier and as such he died. I was with him 
in his last moments, anl although badly hurt as he was, there wasn't one whimper 
passed his lips. He died as a soldier should, with a smile in his eyes and with these 
words on his lips, 'Captain, we'll call it square.' And his death was an example to 
all of us, and I can say for myself and the officers and men of his company that, 
should we pay the supreme sacrifice in this great struggle, if we can meet it with 
the courage and bravery that John Weljer did, we will indeed have left a glorious 
heritage for the future generations." 

Private Weber's mother, a popular and beloved teacher of the Nashville public 
schools, inspired many by her courage in so bravely "carrying on" after the death 
of her son. Her pride in having given her only son to the cause is a beautiful 
example of true patriotism. 

The following account comes from a lifelong friend of the Weber family in Cal- 
vert, Texas, where Private Weber was in business when he enlisted for World War 
service, and where he was as popular and well known as in Davidson County: 

"At the entrance of our government in the world's great struggle John Weber 
was among the first to volunteer. He sold all of his possessions, invested his funds 
in Liberty Bonds for the benefit of his widowed mother and, untrammeled. dedi- 
cated himself with heart and hand to the services of his country. 

"He sought no office, desired no insignia or rank, but joined a batter v of ar- 
tillery as a private soldier, and by his soldierly conduct attracted the attention and 
esteem of his officers and the admiration and confidence of his comrades. 

"On the practice field, by the explosion of a trench mortar of his battery, he 
and four of his comrades met instant death. His remains were taken back to the 
home of his childhood, to the great State of Tennessee, whose soil has been conse- 
crated bv the blood of more patriots than any state of the American Union, save one. 

"John Weber made the supreme sacrifice for his country and its cause, and if 
he had lived through all the years allotted to man on earth, and every virtuous 
effort crowned with its full reward, and had there been vouchsafed to him a chariot 
of fire, he could not have left this earth with greater glory. 

"He lived and passed like some rare flower: maturing early, opens wide at night, 
di^els its richest fragrance on the air. and in the morning is withered on its stem. '

])artiri|iatfd in all engagements from St. Mihiel to Meuse-Argonne. On tin- ni;;ht 
of Novemfiei o a patrol of fifteen men was sent to swim the Meiise River, which 
was entirely frozen over. The men were compelled to turn back before they 
reached the German lines. As im])ortant information was needed at the time, the 
night following Lieutenant Yarbrough was again selected to attempt this sacred 
duty, due to his splendid athletic record. 

Captain Malvin C. Fisher, who was in conmiand of the regiment at the time, in 
a message sent to Lieutenant Yarhrough's mother, said: "Watt was the only officer 
whom I could hope to successfulh >\\\iu lln' i( v rixcr. The mission was one of 
great danger. A friend accompanied liini aiul liny were to he protected from the 
ice by a barrage, but it failed. Lieutenant Yarbrough was desperately wounded and 
was taken prisoner and died November 26, 1918." 

Mrs. Yarbrough received many communications from the highest officers of the 
A. E. F. down to "buck" privates of the 89th Division, commenting in glowing terms 
on the courage and faithfulness of her son, on his cheerful devotion to dutv, and on 
the love for him of his comrades. 

One officer wrote: "I hope if it is necessary for me to give my life that I can 
give it as willingly and cheerfully as Lieutenant Yarbrough. He had a smile that 
would make his worst enemy love him." 

Lieutenant Yarbrough's body is uuw buried at Rose Hill Cemetery. Columbia. 
Tenn., by the side of his grandfather, a captain in the Civil War. Lieutenant Yar- 
brough was a model young man and his record as soldier will be read with pride 
by Tennesseans for generations, and his name will be listed among the greatest 
heroes of America. This last brave act which caused his death is a deed but few- 
soldiers of the World War can boast, yet no sacrifice was too great for this brave 
hero to make. His was indeed the supreme sacrifice. He smilingly gave his all.

The first organized efforts for World War relief work in Davidson County were 
made by a voluntary organization under the chairmanship of Mrs. George \^eeks 
Hale. State Chairman, and Mrs. Hale's sister. Miss Louise McHenry, Davidson 
Countv Chairman. Mrs. Hale and Miss McHenry were traveling in France when 
war was declared in 1914. Impressed with the need for women's services, they 
worked in the Red Cross woikrooms at Tours. France, for three weeks in order to 
acquire the correct knowledge for making hospital supplies. They were the onlv 
Americans in diis group. 

Upon their return to Nashville, in November, 1914, Mrs. Hale assembled a few 
of her friends at her home and organized them into a 
unit for making surgical dressings for French hospitals. 
Money for materials was obtained by voluntary sub- 
scriptions and meetings were held at the homes of the 
members. The work went forward with such earnestness 
that by spring of 1915 three cases of hospital supplies 
were ready for shipment to the hospital at Tours. 
France — the first offering from any Southern State to 
the belligerent countries. 

In October, 1915. Mrs. Hale was appointed presi- 
dent of tlie National Organization, Surgical Dressings 
Committee, for Tennessee, by Miss Carita Spencer, Na- 
tional President. Mrs. Hale consolidated her unit with 
the new organization and organized four other un'ts in

It i^ pt'culiarlv lillin;: lliat llic Oiumv Clidi sli,,uld 
Davidson Coiinly to undfrtakc any constructive form 
as it is the oldest woman's club in Tennessee. 

In the summer of 1914, Miss Louise McHenry, one 
the club, and for several years its president, was travel 
declared. She witnessed the stirring mobilization of 
the French troops, and immediately joined a group of 
French women organized for the purpose of making hos- 
pital supplies. Thus from the outbreak of the W 
War — three years before America's entrance into th 
conflict — the Query Club had the distinction of havin 
a part in World War relief work. 

Returning from France in the fall of 1914, Miss Mc 
Henrv presented to the Query Club the needs of th 
Frcncli lio^pitals: and at a meeting on November 21 
191 1. it was decided that the club would prepare a lio 
of hospital su])plies to lie shipped to France as 
as possible. 

The first meeting for this purpose was held at the m,,^ UANti:^ PiLCHtK 

Y. W. C. A., December 10, 1914, with the Club Presi- 
dent, Miss Paralee McLester. and Miss McHenry as instructors. Both the active and 
honorary members of this club took part in the work, which was so vigorously car- 
ried on that on January 14. 191.5, a box. containing one hundred and eight band- 
ages, six hundred compresses, and a large quantity of other necessities, was ready 
for -hinnieiil to France. Hospital supplies were so scarce in France at that time 
il the letter of appreciation from the hospital at Tours, 
uliiih the shipment was sent, was a very warm one.

to Mrs. James H. Kirkland, President of the Tennessee Society of Colonial Dames, 
on February 10, 1917, recommending immediate formation of a Tennessee branch 
of the National Relief Association in Nashville. 

The officers of the Tennessee Society of Colonial Dames for the period of the 
war were: Mrs. James H. Kirkland, President; Mrs. Overton Lea and Mrs. James 
S. Pilcher. Honorary Presidents: Mrs. Frank W. Ring, First Vice-President; Mrs. 
A. S. Buchanan, of Memphis, Second Vice-President; Mrs. C. B. Wallace, Corre- 
sponding Secretary; Mrs. Samuel H. Orr, Recording Secretary; Mrs. Owen Wilson. 
Treasurer; Mrs. William Duncan, Registrar; and Mrs. J. D. Blanton, Historian. 

On February 20, 1917, Mrs. Kirkland called a meeting of the Tennessee Society, 
at the home of Mrs. Edward Buford, to consider the suggestion of the National 
Treasurer. The plan was received with entire approval by those present, and the 
Tennessee branch of the Relief Association was formd with the following officers, 
who served throughout the war period: Mrs. A. S. Buchanan, State Chairman of 
World War relief work; Mrs. L. D. Tyson, Chairman of the Knoxville unit; Mrs. 
Thomas Day, Chairman of the Memphis unit: Mrs. D. T. Montague. Chairman of 
the Chattanooga unit; and Mrs. Robert F. Jackson, Chairman of the Nashville unit. 

At the bidding of the National Society, the Colonial Dames of Nashville and 
Davidson County entered at once upon their work. Mrs. Robert F. Jackson was 
elected permanent Chairman of the Nashville unit; Mrs. J. D. Blanton, Vice-Chair- 
man; Mrs. Samuel H. Orr, Treasurer; and Mrs. C. B. Wallace, Secretary. In reply 
to requests, the National headquarters of the American Red Cross sent plans for 
organization, patterns for hospital garments and directions for surgical dressings. 
In a short time a charter for a Red Cross unit was granted and the affiliation with 
the National Red Cross organization was completed. All of this took place several 
months before America entered the World War. 

The Colonial Dames' Auxiliary was the pathfinder in Davidson Countv for 
United States World War relief work. At the time of their entrance into this field 
of endeavor there were only three Red Cross chapters in the State. The honor of 
forming the first auxiliary of Red Cross relief work in Tennessee, with its various 
departments of surgical dressings, hospital garments, knitting and first-aid classes, 
after the entrance cf the United States into the World War, belongs to the Nashville 
and Tennessee Society of Colonial Dames, with Mrs. James H. Kirkland as leader. 

The week in which President Wilson made his great appeal to Congress for a 
declaration of war found the Tennessee Colonial Dames already mobilized: and 
when war was declared on April 6. 1917. they were readv for service. For some 
time previous to the United States' declaration of war this organization had been 
giving aid to France, England and Belgium. 

Immediately after America's entrance into the war ]\lrs. James H. Kirkland. 
President, Tennessee Society of Colonial Dames, sent the following telegram to 
President Woodrow Wilson from that organization: 

'The Tennessee Society of Colonial Dames of America, founded to stimulate a 
spirit of true patriotism and love of country, wishes through its officers and hoard 
of managers to extend to President Wilson hearty endorsement of his action in the 
present crisis and pledges him loyal support." 

An immediate reply came from the President, expressing his appreciation for 
the message and its sentiment. This body of women kept their promise during the 
war period, regardless of any sacrifice.

When the Nashville Chapter of the American Red Cross was formed and its 
headquarters opened in July, 1917. the Nashville members of the Colonial Dames 
liecame an auxiliarv of that organization, and under Mrs. J. D. Blanton. Chairman, 
they met each Wednesday at the Chamber of Commerce and Hermitage Club work- 
rooms with a splendid per cent of the membership represented. 

Members of the Colonial Dames who, by virtue of their knowledge of the work. 
were selected to be officers of the Nashville Chapter of the American Red Cross, 
were: Mrs. Robert F. Jackson, Director of Women's Work; Mrs. Frank W. Ring, 
Supervisor of Surgical Dressings; Mrs. Harry W. Evans, Commandant of the Emer- 
gency Canteen Service. Nashville Chapter; Mrs. Jesse M. Overton. Chairman of the 
Red Cross Motor Corps; and Mrs. C. B. Wallace, Chairman of the Communication

The Colonial Dames had representatives on tlie Woman's Committee. Council of 
National Defense, practically all of whom served as leaders of some war activity: 
the League for Women's Service: War Savings organizations: in all house-to-house 
canvasses for war activity; registration for war service and for student nurses; in 
all Red Cross drives; Y. M. C. A. campaigns; French. Belgian. Armenian and 
Civilian relief work and the several book campaigns. 

In the Liberty Loan campaigns the Colonial Dames took an active part, both 
in the buying and the selling of bonds. Booths were maintained by them, and rep- 
resentatives from the membership acted as bond salesmen every day during the 
five Liberty Loan drives in Davidson County. Over $100,000.00 in bonds were

DAVIDSON COUNTY WOMEN IN THE UORLI) WAR. I 'i 1 II 'i I : 



meiil was sliip]ied. reaching Captain Perkins' men on tiie day tliev sailed for overseas 
dutv. 

Lieut. John Overton, one of Nashville's fallen heroes, of the U. S. Marines, was 
supplied with a complete woolen outfit, and on the day he left America he wrote a 
letter of appreciation to the members of the Navy Comforts Committee. Capt. Lewis 
Tillman, of the United States Reserves in France, was sent many of the.se comforts 
for his men. Howell Adams, cf the 12th Engineers (Ry. I. U. S. Reserves, was also 
tlie recipient of a complete outfit. 

After ten months of the most strenuous and efficient work the jNavy Comforts 
Committee realized the necessity of consolidating its forces with the newly estahlished 
.American Red Cross Chapter to prevent duplication of work and waste of material. 
Mrs. Harry W. Evans, President, sent a circular letter to all the units in Tennessee, 
asking them to merge widi their local Red Cross Chapters. When this was done the 
life of the Navy Comforts Committee as a separate organization ranie to n close: hut 
the intelligent efforts of its trained women added much 
to the efficiency of the Nashville Chapter of the Red 
Cross, as well as other patriotic organizations formed 
later. 

Mrs. Harry Evans became the Commandant of th? 
Emergency Canteen Service of the Nashville Red Cros:- 
Chapter, where she worked with the same ability which 
had made the Navy Comforts Committee such a siicces'^. 

Mrs. Evans also had charge of four hundred wait- 
resses at the Nashville Hippodrome during the home- 
coming of the Tennessee boys of the A. E. F., at wdiic'i 
time three large banquets were served, giving thousand 
of soldiers a bounteous "feed." 

Women who made possible the success of this pio- ^^^^^ ^^^^^^ f^mue 

neer organization, which began its service with the en- 
trance of America into the World War, will be found to be practically the personnel 
of the women of Davidson County who carried on until the close of war activities, 
Avhich culminated in the 1919 Christmas roll call of the Nashville Red Cross Chap- 
ter, of which Mrs. Granbery Jackson, a member of the Central Committee, was 
chairman. Due to the experience gained in organization by the members of the 
Navy Comforts Committee, many of whom became leaders in other patriotic or- 
ganizations, credit is due a large per cent of the splendid war work of the women 
of Davidson County. 

The following members of the Navy Comforts organization, who were pioneers, 
gave generous donations and assisted materially from their homes by knitting and 
by serving on Telephone Committees to secure workers:

CORRINNE C.WERT U.MT 
Miss Corrinne Cavert organized a unit among the public school teachers, whose 
patriotism cannot be too highly praised for the excellent manner in which they in- 
stilled with the spirit of helpfulness the children in their charge from the beginning 
of tlie war through the reconstruction period. The Davidson Countv Teachers' As- 
sociation received favorable comment from National and State officers of all World 
War organizations. 

The members of Miss Cavert's Unit were: Miss Corrinne Cavert, Miss Rose 
Goodwin, Miss Annie Cavert, Miss Ida Cavert, Miss Alice Leonard, Miss Hettie 
Duff, Miss Laura M. Malone, Miss Lillian Taylor, Miss Margaret Rose, Miss Grace

Julia Green. Mrs. Ross Hudleston, Mrs. Lou Rascoe. and Mrs. P. M. Tamble. 

CoLNciL OF Catholic Women 

The Catholic women's unit was organized at the residence of Mrs. John Coode. 
Mrs. Horace Cauvin was elected president, Mrs. Herbert McSweeney, secretary, and 
Mrs. John Steadwell, treasurer. The meetings of this unit were held at the Kniehts 
of Columbus club house, and tlie instructors of knitting were Mrs. Bettie Dahlgren. 
Miss Alice G. Smith. Mrs. T. R. Behan. Miss Sadie Cauvin, Mrs. John Bevington, 
and Mrs. Dora Bruce Grimes. 

The following members of the unit donated the wool and knitted a large number

The Fire Fighters Umt 
The fire laddies of Nashville formed a volunteer unit, '"the kit unit." and gave 
their spare time to knitting under the instructions of Mrs. John Coode and Mrs. 
Sam Orr. These men turned out a very creditable number of hand-knitted articles. 
Later they learned to operate a sock machine and greatlv increased the volume of 
the units work. 

Mrs. Harry W. Evans donated the first knitting machine to be used in Nashville, 
and after the practicability of the machine was established several more were pur- 
chased later for the Red Cross Chapter.

began active work in Nashville on May 5, 1919. Many distinguished physicians 
from other cities were guests of the local committee, which arran'jcil io liave lec- 
tures delivered before all the schools and women's organizations in \a-li\illi\ stress-

the splendid results achieved by the Nashville Chapter's Red Cross Extension De- 
partment. It was through her efforts that the records of each of her units are given 
so completely in this volume. As a member of the Advisory Council for the publi- 
cation of this book, she worked untiringly to secure accurate records of all depart- 
ments of the Nashville Red Cross Chapter. Although Mrs. Blackie's rank was that 
of an official, she worked with as much enthusiasm as a private. She led to success 
a number of committees for World War relief work and ablv devoted her tim.e and 
talents to war work from the day the need arose until the end of the conflict.

The official life of the Centennial Club Board of Directors, who are given 
above, was almost coincident with the participation of the United States in the 
World War, and the history of the club's activities during this period is a record

mittee and she and her committee were appointed with authority to act in all mat- 
ters pertaining to the war, to co-operate with patriotic organizations and to lend the 
club house for war work. Mrs. Lacey's committee was a large one and she divided 
the members into neighborhood groups for quick action. An automobile service, 
with Mrs. Emmett Cooper as chairman, was placed at the disposal of the Home 
Service Section of the Nashville Chapter, Red Cross. 

The use of the club house and equipment was tendered to the Xavy Comforts 
Committee, to the Society of the Fatherless Children of France throughout the war, 
to the War Savings Society, to the Ciuinril <>( National Defense, to the National 
League for Women's Service, and to the \a-h\illr Chapter. Red Cross, until suitable 
quarters could be provided. Various jjuliiir Irrtun s on timely topics were delivered 
each dav in the auditorium of the club.

tennial Club, and committees were furnished from its membership for every financial 
campaign conducted in the county for World War relief work. Sixty thousand

he Jour Club had a special day to ^cv^ (mi li(i>|iilal i;aiinfuls at lu-il (iidss Head- 
quarters each week, and organized itself inlu a W . S. S. and Thrill Stamp club. 

FRIDAY MOKMNt; LITKKARY CLUB 

Out of a membership of tweuty-hve, the f^riday Morning Literary Club, with 
Mrs. George E. Blake as the World War president, not one went unregistered for pa- 
triotic service. Three of the members registered for automobile service, one for 
gardening, one for journalism, and the remainder for hospital service. Every 
housekeeper in the club signed the food pledge cards and each of the twenty-five 
members kept Thrift Stamp cards. The club adopted twenty-five French orphans, 
preserved over 1,000 quarts of food, and was enrolled one hundred per cent for Red 
Cross work. Several members of this club received certificates as instructors in the 
Surgical Dressings Department of Red Cross. In every drive for raising war relief 
fimds, the Friday Morning Literary Club had some member as leader. Each mem- 
ber was engaged in some branch of service of the Woman's Committee, Council of 
National Defense, and the five Liberty Loans. 

In answering a questionnaire sent out by the President regarding services ren- 
dered in educational propaganda of the Woman's Committee, one member's answer 
was: '"The most strenuous war service I do is to try to keep my mouth shut."' 

Mrs. Blake, President of the Friday Morning Literary Club, was one of the most 
convincing four-minute speakers on all war propaganda in Davidson Countv.

the service, enlisting the first of May, 1917 She acted for some months as publicity

Army Comfort League 

Mrs. Percy Warner. I^ resident 

The Army Comfort League was the outgrowth of the Army Comfort Circle, of 
Nashville, organized July, 1898, during the Spanish-American War, with Mrs. Henry 
Beaumont as i)resident. At the end of tlie war the activities of the circle ceased, 
until the troubles on the Mexican border developed in 1916, at which time the or- 
ganization renewed its services under the leadership of Mrs. Jesse M. Overton. 

On April 22, 1917, after the entrance of the United States into the World War, 
the members of this circle called a mass meeting at the Tulane Hotel and perfected 
the new organization. Mrs. Percy Warner was unanimously elected President. 
Through the courtesy of the management, the weekly meetings of the League were 
held in the assembly room of the Tulane Hotel. Mrs. Warner appointed the fol- 
lowing officers to assist her in the volume of work confronting the new league: 

Mrs. Georgia Knox-Berry, First Vice-President; Mrs. M. S. Lebeck, Second Vice-President; 
Mrs. Thomas J. Tyne, Tliird Vice-President; Mrs. Laurent Brown, Recording Secretary; Mrs. 
Mary C. Dorris, Corresponding Secretary; and Mrs. Lou Rascoe, Treasurer. The last three officers 
served until December, 1917, when, upon their resignations, Mrs. W. B. Shelton was appointed 
Recording Secretary; Mrs. John G. Gilmore, Corresponding Secretary and Press Chairman; 
Mrs. T. Leigh Thompson. Treasurer, and Mrs. John 0. White, Assistant Treasurer. 

An advisory board was selected from the various local women's organizations, 
the personnel of which was: 

I^frs. Edward Buford. Y. W. C. A.; Mrs. John Hill Eakin. Centennial Club; Mrs, Jesse M. 
Overton, National League for Woman's Sorvirr: Mr<. Ahx, S. Caldwell, Federated Clubs;

Connico, Cumberland Chapter, D. A. R.: Miss Louise G. Lindsley, of the Ladies' Hermitage 
Association; and Miss Mary Ratterman. Godmother's Auxiliary. 

The purpose of the League was to supervise the comforts of the Tennessee sol- 
diers, especially those who had no relatives or friends, and to send help direcllv to 
the individual. From a small nucleus, under Mrs. Warner's able leadership, the 
Army Comfort League grew to a membership of seven hundred women. The work 
inaugurated at the camps in Nashville followed the bovs across the seas and on to 
the battlefields. 

In Mav, June and July, 1917, when the First Tennessee Infantry was stationed at 
Camp Jackson, Nashville, Tenn., the League built and equipped a reading room for 
the regiment stationed in that camp: and tri-weekly entertainments were given for 
the soldiers by the best talent of Nashville, under the direction of Mrs. Kinnard T. 
McConnico and Mrs. H. Louis Sperry. 

In equipping the reading room, Mrs. Joseph H. Thompson donated a victrola: 
Mrs. Mary C. Dorris. stationery, distinguished by the equestrian statue of Andrew- 
Jackson, for whom the camp was named. The die for the stationery was presented 
by Mrs. Thomas J. Tyne and Mrs. B. F. Wilson. A bookcase and many books were 
supplied through the efforts of Mrs. George H. Williams. Mrs. John Steadwell and 
Mrs. M. S. Lebeck. The daily papers of the State were obtained through the efforts

in ronnection with this camp was under the supervision 

of Mrs. J. T. McGill, Chairman, assisted by the women 

of \'anderbilt Campus, who were members of the League. 
After the boys had departed for other camps and 

enlistments grew, the demands made of the Nashville 

organization were so great that Mrs. Percy Warner, 

President, and her Executive Board, decided to call a 

conference of county representatives on Jackson Dav. 

January 8, 1918, for the purpose of extending the 

League's activities throughout the counties of Tennessee. 

Mrs. John G. Gilmore served as general chairman of 

the conference, assisted bv Mrs. Percv Warner. Mrs. T. 

Leigh Thompson. Mrs. John R. Aust,' Mrs. W. B. Shel- 

ton, Mrs. J. 0. White. Mrs. Thomas J. Tyne, and Mrs. 

M. S. Lebeck. ^^Tc.,!i"" nufli"' 

Although the weatlicr cindilicins were such as to 

cause the rural roads lliroughout the State to be practically impassalile. the fact 

that the women were to be allowed to form an organization to work for their own 

sons brought representatives from seventy-five counties of Tennessee. Mrs. Percy 

Warner, President, presided, and made an appealing address at the luncheon fol- 
lowing the conference, which was attended by over four hundred workers. Other 

helpful talks were siven at the luncheon by Mrs. George W. Denny, of Knoxville; 

Mrs. Alex. Caldwell. Mrs. James S. Frazer, Mrs. Jesse M. Overton, Mrs. Robert W. 
Nichol. Mrs. Charles Caldwell, Miss Louise G. 
Lindsley. and Miss Delia Dortch, on the work of the 
organizations which they represented. The inspira- 
tion gained from the conference was far-reaching 
in its benefits, and was helpful to other patriotic or- 
ganizations throughout Tennessee. 

Mrs. John C. Brown, an active member of the 
Advisory Board, gave a liberal donation at the con- 
ference for the formation of a league in Giles 
County, her husband's native home. This branch 
grew to be the second in activity in the State. Mrs. 
Thomas B. Wade served as president of the Giles 
C(.untv LeaLiue. and Miss Ruby Carter, secretary. 
Mrs. Sam X^'oodward represented Giles County at 
the conference. This league not only equipped everv 
soldier from Giles County with a knitted outfit and 
kept in personal touch with them throughout the 
lunch for each soldier on departure for camp, suf- 




war, but furnished a farewi 
ficient for his journey. 

Other leagues developing from the Nashville League's conference were: Ruther- 
ford County League, Murfreesboro, Mrs. W. C. Covington. President, and Mrs. 
Mahlon Brown, Secretary: Montgomery County League, Clarksville, Mrs. Gracev

Press Committee 



It is an acknowledged fact that the splendid amount of publicity given to every 
World War movement was a telling factor in not only the final result, but also in 
the formation and extension of every patriotic endeavor. This work was a real 
necessity as a means for bringing about a successful conclusion of hostilities. 

The newspapers of Davidson County responded so generously with space that 
it was a pleasure to hand copy to them, knowing that it would be featured in an 
effective manner. 

The press women, both professional and amateur, who constantlv kept every 
issue before the public, and who were so indefatigable in the seeking and handling 
of every item of news that would interest or arouse the public, deserve a special 
tribute of thanks for the unceasing application and the intelligent handling they 
gave to this important branch of public service. Among the women who handled 
the press work in Davidson County were:

For a |ipriiid of nineteen months, beginnin"; two months after the th-elaration of 
far with the United States and lasting until after the signing of the Armistice, Mrs. 
Edward A. Lindsay served with the United States 
Food Administration as a retail price ir|iiirlcr. wliicli 
responsibility was entrusted to only a lew individ- 
uals. The duties of this position consisted in per- 
sonally securing each week prices on all necessi- 
ties, including food and fuel, for the purpose of 
preventing profiteering. This service, which was 
done secretly, entailed an immense amount of de- 
tail work. 

As a reward for her services, Mrs. Lindsey was 
awarded a certificate from headquarters at Wash-

Mrs. Tennie Coleman Sharpe and Miss Anna Hayes were appointed liy Post- 
master Williams to serve at the postofRce at Jacksonville, being the first women to 
assume duties at the gigantic Powder Plant. 

Though these women received a salary for their services, the compensation was 
small compared with the vast amount of work that was required in handling the 
mail for the many thousand strangers who daily poured into the Government work 
at the magic city of Jacksonville. Often these patriotic women remained on duty 
from seven o'clock in the morning until eleven o'clock at night, and the patrons of 
the postoffice had many occasion> to thank the intelligent and gracious postmistresses 
for helping them through the dilfh iiltics that were unavoidable in the confusion

Credit is due Mrs. S. S. Crockett for the pioneer organizalion cil wdiniii workers 
of the -Nashville Chapter, Red Cross. Mrs. Croekett showed ui-ilnm in seletting 
Mrs. Percy D. Maddin to fill the highest oflice anioiic the wcuiirn d tlie Chapter. 

Mrs. Maddin assumed her duties as if under niilitai\ \\\\i~. .md practically closed 
her home for the two years of tlie war period and gave \u-v inliic lime in volunteer 
service to the Chapter work, regardless of sacrifice. Slie was one of the most gen- 
erous supporters financially, too, of this organization, and each department of tiie 
Chapter keenly fell her interest and lielp. Each of the twenty-five thousand women 
who are recorded in the various departments ol ihc NM-h\illc Chajitcr lound in Mrs. 
Maddin a friend, willing and reads al all tinu- |o ,,, np.ralr in anv wav Im, the

Although Miss Rubie Simpkins, as secretary of tlie Chapter, was paid a small 
salary, her interest and overtime were of valuable assistance to every department. 
The janitor's services, also, were well rendered, and each paid worker's salary was 
small in comparison to the patriotic service they gave. 

The development plans suggested by National and Divisional Headquarters of the 
Red Cross were followed by Nashville Chapter officials as accurately as local con- 
ditions would permit. The Chapter's first headquarters, both offices and workrooms, 
were located in the Chamber of Commerce building, where sections of two floors 
were given bv The Nashville Manufacturers' Association. These headquarters were 
maintained until June. 1918. when, by that time, the work had outgrown these gen- 
erous arrangements. Inasmuch as the war was tlien at its height and the supplies 
sent out by the Red Cross were so essential to the welfare of our fighting forces, it 
became necessary to remove to larger quarters. 

The Hermitage Club of Nashville, with a spirit in keeping with the club's record 
of twenty-five per cent of its membership in active service, offered the Nashville 
Chapter, Red Cross, the use of its spacious ball room, roof garden and public dining- 
room, with the promise of more space if needed. The Hermitage Club created 
through its individual members a w^ar fund which made all changes necessary for 
the convenience of the Red Cross workers. The rooms were rearranged to accom- 
modate special needs and coinforts. In these commodious and well-lighted rooms 
Red Cross war activities were carried on until June. 1919. when there was no longer 
any need for work. 

Practically all groups which had been doing Red Cross work before the or- 
ganization of the Nashville Chapter became auxiliaries and parties to the general 
production schedule, supplemented by a large number of new auxiliaries through- 
out Davidson County, under the direction of Mrs. George F. Blackie. the Nashville 
Chapter's Extension Chairman. 

The detailed report of the work accomplished in the various departments of the 
Nashville Chapter. American Red Cross, will be read with pride bv everv citizen 
of Davidson County, as they were all friends and supporters of this organization.

Through tlie efforts of the Extension Conniiittee of the Nashville Chapter. A. R. 
C. there were organized in Nashville and Davidson County eighty-six auxiliaries. 
Thirty-six of these auxiliaries came to work at Red Cross Headquarters, which were 
at first located in the Chamber of Commerce building, and later, at the Hermitage 
Club: and nineteen worked at various churches, clubs and neighborhood centers. 
Each of these auxiliaries received their supplies from the Woman's Work Depart- 
ment at the Nashville Chapter Headquarters. 

The policy of the Nashville Red Cross Chapter in the beginning of 1917 in 
regard to auxiliaries was tliat no supplies be given out except in the w'orkroom at 
headquarters and in the Davidson County districts. Later, at a State Convention 
of American Red Cross workers, held in October, 1917, a call was issued for thou- 
sands of flat muslin dressings from the Surgical Dressings Department. As that 
department was not equipped with sewing machines, these dressings were made bv 
the city and county district auxiliaries of the Extension Department, and this ruling 
was thereafter followed throughout the war period.

THE GIRLS- AUXILIARY TO XASHMLLE CHAPTER. A. R. C. 

On October 29, 1917, Miss Sadie Cauyin and Miss Mary Rattennan organized 
the girls of Nashyille into a Godmothers" Auxiliary, and Miss Mary Ratterman was 
elected Chairman. 

In February. 1918. the name of the organization was changed at the request of 
the Nashyille Red Cross officials to the Girls' Auxiliary of the Red Cross. The pur- 
pose of the organization was to work in the interest of the Tennessee soldiers, sup- 
plying them witli such comforts and necessities as "smokes,'' knitted garments, jams 
and j'ellies. The membership grew until it enrolled over 300 young women in 
Dayidson County. 

The first funds of the organization were obtained at a dance giyen at the Cham- 
lier of Commerce, and were used for equipping two hundred and fifty comfort bags 
for JNIrs. John Coode. Chairman for the Red Cross. The members of the auxiliary 
paid yearly dues and kept a sacrifice box for the trench smoke fund. Wooden boxes 
accompanied by brilliant posters were placed in down-town stores for free-will dona- 
tions to the smoke fund. 

A play at the Vendome Theater was sponsored by the auxiliary, and the sum 
of one hundred and fifteen dollars was raised. On Thanksgiying. 1917, the girls 
sold their own buttons in the morning and added two hundred and seventy-six dol- 
lars to the treasury. 

The most unique and successful undertaking of the auxiliary during the war was 
the plan of running tlie Hermitage Hotel for one day. On May 17, 1918, tire man- 
agement of the hotel turned its affairs completely over to the Girls' Auxiliary, and 
every "tip" job in tlie hotel, from bell boy, elevator operator, waiter, clerk, page, 
to general manager, was filled by a smiling girl, wearing Red Cross headgear. The 
sum of SI. 711. 00 was realized. Miss Corinne Craig. Chairman of Ways and Means, 
was Chairman General of the hotel day. On her committee were the following sub- 
chairmen, who selected their respective committees, the members of the committees 
including the entire personnel of the auxiliary: 

Waitresses, Miss Mary Lee Crockett ; Maids, Mrs. W. D. Trabue, Jr. ; Elevators. Miss Percie 
Warner; Flowers and Shoe Shine Parlor. Miss Alice Hall Lindsey: Clerks. Miss Sarah Shannon;

WHITE'S CREEK AU.XILIARY 

The White's Creek Auxiliary was organized in July. 1917. with Mrs. Count 
Boyd as Chairman, Miss Nell Earthman as Treasurer, and Miss Mary Ellen Fontaine 
as Secretary. Mrs. S. S. Crockett and Mrs. W. A. Bryan were the organizers. This 
unit met each Friday at the Alex Green Church and sewed all day, many of the 
ladies bringing their sewing machines with them. At the Community Fair they had 
a booth to raise money to buy more sewing machines. One member donated a calf 
to be sold at the fair for this fund. The first five dozen bed sheets made by them 
was a gift to the Nashville Chapter. Red Cross. Later the materials W'ere secured at 
the Central workroom. Three hundred ninety-seven hospital garments were made 
by the members, who also knitted a large number of articles of which no record 
was kept. Mrs. 0. L. Grimes did a large and efficient amount of knitting, for which 
she received a service stripe from the Red Cross. This unit was also at the top in 
results accomplished. The following were charter members: 

Mrs. Count R. Boyd. Mrs. D. J. Campbell, Mrs. Lizzie Carney, Mrs. A. P. Connell. Mr*.

The Home Service Section of llie Nashville Chapter. A. R. C. was organized in 
the spring of 1917. with J. G. Creveling. Jr.. as Chairman. The committee was 
composed of James H. Parkes. Dr. J. Paul Harvill. John H. DeWitt. Miss Nan 
Dorsev. and Mrs. (Claude I). Sullivan. The oflice in the ('hamher of Commerce 
Iniilding was opened Januav 1. 1918. and Miss F.velyn Evans Carrington. social 
.-( rvire worker, was secured as Executive Secretary. She. 
with the clerical assistance of .Miss Ruhy Simpkins and 
the aid of a few volunteers, conducted the work until 
July. 1918. at whi<h lini- Miss Vir^'inia Howlett. an 
experienced social umkri. uas added li> the fe.ree as a 
salaried assistanl I.. \li-> Carrington. 

The duty of the Home Seivice Se.lion was to care 
for the families of the soldiers and sailors in any emer- 
uciicv. and to guarantee their welM)i!nL' at all times so 
that lamilv worries w.,uld n,>t he add :<1 lo ih ■ .-iddier's 
Inirden. 

Not oidv (lid the llnme Service Deparlment of the 
Nashville Chapter keej) up the morale of the soldier 
while overseas and in the army camjjs. hul it main- 
tained the e.sential standards of home life. 
This section estahlished communicaticn between soldiers and their families 
through odicial sources at Waihingtcn and in the various camps, wliere the families 
would have been absoluttdy helpless. The department loaned nionev to families 




pending the receipt of checks for allotments, and sr;ured 
Bureau on matters which could not have been handled 
bv the individual. Thev sent marriage and birth cer- 
tificate.', to the Bureau in allotment cases, and \\i\es of 
the soldiers were sent to the hospitals and cared hir al 
childbirth. For cliildren of all Davidson Counlv sol 
dicrs who were not fortunate enough to have a Sania 
Clans otherwise, the Home Service Department acted a- 
guardian angel, and ex-service men in the hospitals re- 
ceived the same tender care. Tubercular wives of all 
soldiers in service were sent to the hospitals and nurses 
were |)rovided lo care for llir^ i liildren at home uliile 
thev were awav. Busim^- < oiir-i~ were given member--

Among the thousands of 

swered by this department, two stand out arnoii;j 

many as typical of the ever-ready and willing spirit 

of the Home Service worker. When the railroad 

wreck at Dutchman's Grade occurred in the sum- 
mer of 1918, in which inore than a hundred people 

were killed and injured, the Home Service workers 

visited the injured, took messages from the dying 

to their loved ones, and sent telegrams and letters 

to the families. In addition to this, an emergency 

hospital was arranged at the colored Y. M. C. A. 

rendered to the injured passengers of the colored race 

The influenza epidemic of the fall of 1918 called forth all the energies of the 

Nashville Chapter, Home Service workers. Every call was attended promptlv. al- 
though every paid worker, except Miss Carriiigton, 
was stricken with the disease. She secured the serv- 
ices of a trained nurse, Mrs. Florence M. Fletcher,

Irs. H. H. Cmso 
(Sadie McGuire) 



The work of the Publicity Department involved the publishing of certain bulletins 
sent from National and Divisional Headquarters in newspapers and the posting of 
these bulletins throughout Davidson County on specified dates. The committee was 
held strictly accountable for the accuracy of all information given to the public, 
and was responsible for keeping the name and emblem of the Red Cross from being 
misused. This required the committee to be familiar with the personnel of each 
department of the Chapter's work in its nine divisions and to know the varying 
aspects of Divisional and National authorities and their relationship to each other 
and to the chapters. 

An average of eight hundred and six inches of copy per month was printed in 
the daily papers of Davidson County. All copy, except telegraphic news and canteen 
publicity, passed through this committee's hands, was edited and made acceptable to 
the newspapers and delivered to the printing offices, night or day. as the issues re- 
quired. 

Intensive work was called for in special drives or unusual activities of anv de- 
partment. The American Red Cross authorized its chapter "machinery"' to exploit 
all other relief agencies. 

The First Annual Report of the Nashville Chapter, A. R. C, 1917-1918, was part 
of the routine work of the Publicity Committee.

So great was the part played by women in the work of the Nashville Chapter, 
Red Cross Production Department, that it became known as "Woman's Work." al- 
though women were occupied in every other department of the Chapter. The 
''Woman's Work," or "Chapter Production Departme-iit." \sa> made up entirely of 
women volunteers who gave faithfully and generously of tlicir time and talent. 

The Department of Woman's Work was directed by .Mrs. Robert F. Jackson, who 
led her "Regiment" of several thousand women ably and wisely. This department 
received all communications from Divisional Headquarters of the National Red 
Cross Committee in regard to the materials to be used and instructions for the making 
of hospital garments, surgical dressings and knitted article?. The departments in

<:aged during the war was that of the u,.nicn listed in llic^e dcpartmcnls. in wiiirli 
nu>re than 15.000 were engaged. 

."Standard patterns and specilications from National !lr,i(l(]uai Icis ucic used in

passed on by the dinx^'tor to the heads of the various (l(|Milrnrnl> Id 1 nn-idria:ion. 

As the work of the Woman's Work or Production l)c|)arlmeMl of liie Nashville 
Chapter increased it was found by llie National ]lead(|uarters of the .\. R. C. that 
there was danger of overproduction of some articles and not enough of others, and 
also that only limited transportation could he seiurcd. I his la(t made it neces-ary

Klizaheth 
ml taught 

1--1!-. are, 
ilr Ford), 



to instruct three classes, each consisting of fifty-six women, in the making of surgical 
dressings. Twenty-five of the women who took this course qualified as instructors, 
thus giving to tlie Nashville Chapter a nucleus for the continuation of classes and the 
training of women for the special work of expert making of surgical dressings. 
From this heginning twelve instructors conducted twenty-one classes in Nashville, 
each class being composed of three hundred twenty women, and also eighteen classes 
in the counties of Middle Tennessee, composed of two hundred ninety women each. 

The value of the trained worker for the making of surgical dressings was re- 
vealed by the quality and quantity of the completed work. These trained workers 
gave their services in various ways to keep up the required standard set for such 
work. Twenty of them, four each day, were floor chairmen in the workroom at the 
Chamber of Commerce and Hermitage Club Headquarters. They received special 
instructions from the supervisor or her assistant and kept the tables supplied with 
necessary materials for the large body of daily workers. Each table was provided 
with a trained worker whose duty was to see that all work came up to the standard. 

Special activities of this department were operated under Cutting. Inspection and 
Packing Committees. No exact valuation can be put on the splendid work of these 
sub-committees and their chairmen. 

The work of the Surgical Dressings Section of the Nashville Chapter increased 
so rapidly that it soon became necessary to open other gauze rooms. Four addi- 
tional surgical dressings workrooms were put in operation by tliis department. Thev 
were located at Ward-Belmont College, at Clemens and Warner Schools and at the 
Tulane Hotel, all being model workrooms in charge of qualified instructors. Thr

Itnded and its patriotic value received favorable com- 
ment from Red Cross oflScials as well as other organiza- 
licns.

struction davs. New classes were foniied from time to time and the Committee 
planned to put this course in the public schools. 

Dr. McPheeters Glasgow was the Instructor in First Aid Classes for this depart- 
ment, and was assisted by Dr. William Sumpter. Dr. Harrington Marr and Dr. Sam 
Cowan, each of whom instructed several classes. 

Miss Nan Dorsey and Mrs. Willie F. Acree, professional nurses, were appointed 
Supervisors and Instructors of the classes in Elementary Hygiene and Home Nurs- 
ing. The conunittee having this work in charge was coinposed of Mrs. R. H. Lacev. 
as" Chairman, and Mrs. Henry Teitlebaum, Mrs. Perkins Baxter, Mrs. John R. 
Wheeler and Miss Matilda Porter, as assistants to Mrs. Lacey. 

The need for help during the epidemic of influenza in the fall of 1918 brought 
to the Home Nursing Committee of the Nashville Chapter. A. R. C. the first call for 
active service, and the situation was desperate enough to put the strength and ef- 
ficiency of the entire Committee to the severest test. Th response of the workers 
was satisfactory proof of their sincerity and the adequacy of the Educational Courses 
of this department. It is a matter of pride to the Educational Committee that when 
instructions concerning the influenza epidemic were received from National Head- 
quarters of the Red Cross they were identical with the methods already being pur- 
sued bv the Nashville Chapter. The hearts of Davidson County's generous public 
were so touched bv the distressing situation that gifts of money, bed clothing, food 
and other comforts were daily received bv this committee, and large supplies of 
every needed article were available at all times for distribution to the destitute 
families.

acter, Mrs. Lacey herself rendering untiring service.

Miss Mary McGown, Mrs. J. H. Matthews and Miss Alma Oliver served as heads 
of the Diet Kitchen. A number of graduate and Red Cross nurses were in charge of 
patients during the epidemic, and members of the Executive Board and volunteers 
for this service remained in the hospital overnight when needed. A group of faith- 
ful workers served the patients with breakfasts, put patients and wards in order for 
the day, during the entire time of the existence of the hospital. Miss Alma Oliver 
served breakfast to the patients every morning for three weeks bginning at five o'clock. 

Another group furnished the social end by establishing a convalescent room, 
writing letters for the boys and entertaining them. 

A splendid service was rendered by Lieutenant McCutcheon. detailed by the 
Commandant to Mrs. S. S. Crockett and her committee for hospital service, and the 
K. P. orderlies placed by him at the disposal of the coimiiittee were greatly appre- 
ciated by officials of the Nashville Red Cross Chapter. One hundred and ninety 
cases of influenza were cared for, and though a large number of patients were verv 
ill with pnrumiinia. only two cases proved fatal, due to tiie careful attention th 'v 
received frum this committee.

During tliis dark period of llic connict of tlie army at home tlie symbol of the 
Red Cross over the hospital door and on the uniforms of the Camp Activities Com- 
mittee and volunteer helpers repeated its historv of relief and comfort, and un- 
doubtedly proved an important factor in assislinp the |)tivsicians and nurses in saviiiir 
many lives of the country's soldicis in traiiiiui:. 

Probably the most heroic and most self-sacrificins service rendered during the 
World War by the women of Davidson County, both trained and untrained, were 
those who volunteered as nurses during the influenza epidemic, which made its first 
appearance in the county during the t^'orld War. Entire families were stricken at 
one time, and while our boys were in the midst of battle in France dozens of rela- 
tives, friends and acquaintances of Davidson (iountv residents at home were probablv 
lying cold in death from this disease. It «as dillicult for the urulertakcrs of \a^li-

County, and it was not unusual to see nieniliers of a family bury tlieir own. Several 
dozen bodies sometimes lay at the undertaking establishments at one time, waiting 
for caskets to be procured. Davidson County citizens arose to the emergency, and 
hundreds of her women left their homes, if they were fortunate enough to escape 
having the disease in their own families, and volunteered as nurses wherever their 
services were needed in the city, county, or Powder Plant. Miss Ellen Foster, Miss 
Will Petway. Mrs. J. H. Matthews, Mrs. Edine Armstrong Matthews and Mrs. R. E. 
Porter spent weeks nursing influenza patients in North and East Nashville. Emer- 
gency kitchens were in operation in every section of Nashville and at the Powder 
Plant, and delicacies were prepared and distributed to every needy person bv the 
housewives of Davidson County. 

Mrs. S. S. Crockett, who so ably organized the women of Davidson County for 
many of the World War activities, rendered another splendid service by acting as 
leader of the Vanderbilt Hospital Emergency Committee in the influenza epidemic.

JNashville Chapter. Red Cross, was more skillfully or efTicieiitly ortranizecl than its 
Emergency Canteen Department. 

The organization of the Canteen Committee of the Nashville Chapter consisted of 
a commandant, four captains, ten lieutenants, six teams for daily service and four 
special committees. The duties of the Special Committees were the purchasing and 
issuing of supplies, the furnishing of medical aid, ambulance and hospital service 
for sick or injured soldiers and sailors, the selling of stamps and the mailing of 
letters for the passing soldiers, the distributing of daily papers and magazines, the 
providing of shower baths with soap and towels for every individual soldier, and the 
providing of emergency hospital aid for sick or injured soldiers and sailors, or 
their relatives, at all times. 

Two of the four Canteen Captains. Mrs. W. 0. Tirrill and Mrs. Samuel Douglas, 
served respectively as Secretary and Treasurer for this department, and the two others, 
Mrs. C. A. Craig and Mrs. John W. Moore, were Captains of Train Service. The 
Lieutenants of the department and their teams provided the refreshmenst and enter- 
tainment service for the soldiers. Mrs. B. Kirk Rankin served as the efficient Pub- 
licity Chairman of the Committee. 

The functions of the Emergency Canteen Service Conmiittee were to supplement 
the efforts of the War Department and the railroads in providing comforts for troops 
in transit and to render them such attention as the occasion demanded. The War 
Department instructed railroads to inform the Commandant. Mrs. Evans, of the ap- 
proach of troop trains, and she in turn informed her Captains, who assembled the 
workers. This information was a secret in time of actual war and was entrusted 
only to those whose honor and discretion were above reproach. No Nashville Red 
(aoss Canteen worker was ever known to betrav this trust.

of Mercy." 

The Magazine Coimnittee, Miss Alice Gertrude Smitii. Cliairman. Mrs. Bernard 
Fensterwald. Miss Mary DeMoville Hill. Miss Lizinka Farrell and Miss Mary Porter 
Kirkman, as Lieutenants, ably assisted with the duties of this cominittee. 

Active work by the Nashville Emergency Canteen started in January, 1918, and 
began to take on large proportions immediately. The Terminal Company at Nash- 
ville built a Hut on the track level at the LTnion Station for the Canteen Headquar- 
ters, and soon three large departments of this committee were put into operation. 
The importance of the Canteen work soon became apparent, and in a short time it 
was found necessary to keep the Hut open the whole of every day. A team was de- 
tailed for daily service as a Bureau of Information and Attention, and the Com- 
mittee's experience in these constant contacts with the American soldiers supplied 
ample justification for the operation of this branch of the service. 

At the little Canteen Hut down at the station cheer, comfort, food, material aid 
and often advice and help in personal troubles were given the thousands of soldiers 
and sailors who passed through Nashville from all parts of America. The workers 
spared themselves no effort, either of body or spirit, for the boys in khaki. Taking 
no thought of risk to themselves, the women of the Nashville Chapter Emergencv 
Canteen Service not only fed and entertained the hungry and wearv. but ministered 
to the sick, not hesitating to come in contact widi various kinds of contagious dis- 
ease- when the need arose. Now and then, in tragic cases, tliev helped a wrongdoer

the shower baths were termed "life savers" by the boys in kliaki. ulio always voted 
for a bath instead of a hinch if there was not time for both. A balli altiMidaiil was 
kept on duty by the Canteen Committee at all times. 

In October, 1918, the first Hut became so inadequate that a new building with 
a Hospital and Soldiers' Rest Room attached was erected on the same site. Through 
the courtesy of Mr. and Mrs. Percy D. Maddin. these quarters were completely fitted 
with comfortable and convenient furnishings, and the ablest doctors in Nashville 
gave their time and services to the Canteen Hospital whenever they were needed. 
First-aid outfits and simple remedies were issued tlie troops in transit each day, and 
the Medical Aid Committee gave special attention to every sick soldier, sending 
notification to Government Authorities and families of the patients, and often ac-. 
companying them to their next destination if they were compelled to proceed im- 
mediately. 

A war memorv of unforgetable lieauty is of this little Hut on Christmas Eve, 
1918. with its immaculate whiteness, its soft light, its glowing Red Cross and its 
shining Christmas tree, all set like a dream of home in the midst of the dust and 
turmoil of the railway station, the handiwork of the Canteen members. 

Spiritual as well as physical comforts were dispensed at the Canteen Headquar- 
ters at all times, and numerous telegrams announcing the fact that "unto thee a 
child is born" were sent to soldier fathers by the Nashville Canteen workers, and 
they never failed to follow up the good news by caring for the mother and child, 
if they were in need of assistance, sending information to the husband and father 
overseas. 

The Red Cross on the Canteen door acted as an "open sesame" to the confidence 
of tlie soldiers, and many domestic and financial diftirulties were solved l>y Nash- 
ville Emergency Canteen members. 

From February to July. 1918, this committee met one hundred and fiftv trains of 
twelve coaches each and numerous detached coaches and detached soldiers, all of 
whom were served by the Lieutenants of the Nashville Canteen and their teams. 

The Mailing and Stamp Committee mailed thousands of letters and cards each 
day, the only articles sold by the Nashville Canteen Committee being the United 
States postal stamps. 

The Magazine Committee collected the daily papers which were donated by the 
Nashville Tennessean and the Nashville Bainier publishing companies. Magazines 
were contributed by the Davidson County public and distributed through the troop 
trains by the Canteen members. 

The Bureau of Information was one of the most important branches of the Emer- 
gency Canteen Sei-vice. 

Red Cross Canteen workers were under almost military discipline; thev were 
required to wear uniforms, and nothing but illness was an acceptable excuse for 
absence from duty. Although tJie day's work normally lasted from eight o'clock 
a.m. to nine o'clock p.m.. if troops arrived later than these hours they were alwavs 
met and cared for by these patriotic women, led by Mrs. Harry W. Evans. Exact 
records of each department were kept and Government reports of Canteen activities 
were made out on blanks furnished the officers of the troops in transit, so that the 
information reaching the National Headquarters Committee, at Washington, came 
from the soldiers and officers, as well as from the Canteen Coimnandant. 

The following report of the Supply Conmiittee, covering a period of six months. 
reveals something of the vast amount of work accomplished by the Nashville Can-

The .\ashville Emergency Canteen Service received mucli va!iKil.l( aiil liom Dllicr 
patriotic organizations in addition to being in daily receipt nl ddiialiun- Irnin iiidi- 
vidualf and mercantile and grocery firms, and practically ever) ((Mirii\ iii Iciincs- 
see. The children of Nashville save many entertainments and sa\r(l llnloil lo lir- 
sold for the benefit of the Nashville Red Cross Canteen fund. The \alM.iial l..a:;ue 
iif Woman's Service, the EUiston Unit of the Red Cross and the Girls" Auxiliary of 
liie Nashville Chapter, A. R. C, gave generous donations of money. 

After July. 1918, the Nashville Emergency Canteen was entirely self-sustaining 
and did not again call on the Nashville Red Cross Chapter for the former allotment 
of three hundred dollars a month. Mrs. T. Leigh Thompson, a member of the Can- 
teen, served as Chairman of a Thanksgiving donation given the Canteen by the Army 
Comfort League, of which Mrs. Percy Warner was leader. Several automobiles 
were required to convey the articles collected by members of the League to the Can- 
teen Headquarters. 

One of the principal cau-i > (.1 tlu' financial success of the Nashville Canteen, m 
\\A\ as the interest shouii tlu.ai-in.iit the State, was the fact that Mrs. B. Kirk 
Rankin. Publicity Chairman of this organization, worked so faithfullv and untiringly 
to present its interests to the public. Hundreds of human-interest stories which 
touched the hearts of the readers were recounted by Mrs. Rankin: and the receipt of 
all donations to the Canteen was always promptly acknowledged by her through the 
Nashville press, and the public grew to watch daily for Canteen needs. 

When the Government orders for the conservation of gasoline were received in 
•Nashville, tlie automobile of Mrs. Harry Evans, the Canteen Connnandant. was ex- 
empted from the strict general rules, because the importance of serving the soldiers 
in transit was paramount to every other issue. 

The Motor Corps of the Nashville Chapter. A. R. C, rendered nnich valuable 
aid to the Emergency Canteen workers, not only in answering eve v call made by 
the Commandant for soldiers passing through Nashville. Init in transporting sup- 
plies from the donors to the Canteen Headquarters. 

So multifarious were the duties of the Nashville Emergency Canteen that a sum- 
mary would fill this history. In recognition of their services the Government hung 
a banner in the Home and Educational building at the Tennessee State Fair in 
1018. where an exhibition of the nature of the Nashville Canteen work aroused much 
interest and was the inspiration of countless donations from out-of-town visitors to 
the Fair. 

After the departure of the troops for overseas, the work of the Nashville Chapter. 
Red Cross, Canteen was changed to that of a "Welcome Home Committee," for the 
wounded and sick very soon began to be sent back to this country. When the war 
ended the Executive Committee of the Chamber of Commerce appointed Mrs. Harry 
W. Evans Chairman of Serving for the home-coming festivities, which was a climax 
to the splendid record she and her committee had established. Each member of the 
Canteen served as a lieutenant on Mrs. Evans' committee. 

In July. 1919. the need for active Canteen service being over, the \ash\illc Can- 
teen workers were dismissed and put upon a reserve force to be called out innne- 
diately in time of any great public disaster. Thirty-five certificates were given the 
women of the Canteen Service by the Nashville Chapter of the Red Cross, and the 
supplies on hand at the Canteen when it closed were distributed among twelve 
charitable institutions of Davidson County. 

Red Cross Canteen workers came into real touch with the boys in khaki and re-

Junior Membership Committee, Nashville 
Chapter, A. R. C. 

Mrs. Geohce F. Blackie. Chairman 

The Junior Department of the Nashville Chapter, A. R. C, was never formally 
organized as a department. However, there were two private schools, five county 
schools and five neighborhood groups in Davidson County organized for Red Cross 
work, with a total membersliip of 1.029 members. 

Miss Annie Allison's Girls' Preparatory School and the Peabody College 
Demonstration School did exceptional work for the Nashville Chapter. These 
schools had weekly meetings which were kept up during the vacation months as well 
as during the school term. Robertson Academy was the first county district school 
to organize, and the Red Cross work was carried on until the need for such work no 
longer existed. Walter Stokes. Read. Central High and Eastland Schools were 
Davidson County district organizations that comprised a membership of five hundred 
pupils. 

Layettes, refugee garments, dresses, chemises, boys' blouses, quilts, comfort kits, 
propertv bags, gun covers, pillows, substitute handkerchiefs, and wash rags were 
among the articles made by the junior organizations of the Nashville Chapter. The 
Girls' Preparatory School made Red Cross hospital garments, flat muslin dressings 
and bandages for first-aid packets. 

While not a Junior Auxiliary. Wallace University School boys made 10.000 ap- 
plicators for first-aid packets. 

Before the Nashville Chapter, Red Cross, was organized two children's auxiliaries 
were formed in Nashville with a membership of over two hundred. These groups 
met each week in East Nashville and in the West End section of Nashville. Their 
work consisted of making fracture pillows, wash rags and substitute handkerchiefs. 

During tliis time the boys in the public schools of the county, under the direction 
of tlie Director of Manual Training, met each week at Hume-Fogg High School and 
made a number of boxes of needed articles for the Nashville Chapter. These boxes 
w'ere made according to Red Cross specifications and were used for shipping the 
output of the Surgical Dressings and Garment departments. These boys also made 
various kinds of splints. In the contest held by the Junior Red Cross Committee for 
designs for furniture to be used in Red Cross Cantonments the first and third prizes 
were won by the Hume-Fogg High School boys. 

Miss Annie Allison's Girls' Preparatory School was the first school in Davidson 
County to organize and begin work. In September, 1917, with appropriate exer- 
cises, every girl in this school signed a pledge for Red Cross work, and gave a sub- 
scription toward the Junior Red Cross Flag. Miss Josephine Farrell was Instructor 
of the work, and funds to secure materials were raised at a bazaar, class plays and 
by individual donations of the pupils of the school. This auxiliary gave ten dollars 
to the Red Cross linen shower, and in addition to the work of the school, the girls 
did knitting at home. The following girls were members of this unit: 

Margaret Early. Frances Dickerson. Martha Baird, Frances Hill, Ann Humphreys Morton. 
Frances Harris, Harriet Childers. Mary Belle Maddin. Frances Stahlman. Ann Bransford. Marv 
Dudley Dake, Annie Laura Campbell Mildred Gray, Frances Gray, Victoria Ambrose. Julia

[iiformation Desk, Nashville Chapter. A. R. C. 

Mrs. E. O. Tate. Chairman 




The General Administrative Departments of Red Cross Chapters were instructed 
to maintain an information desk at their local headquarters by the Division office 

of the National Red Cross. This desk furnished 

information for the benefit of visitors and prospec- 
tive workers; was responsible for the sale of Red 
Cross books, badges, novelties and supplies for all 
departments and auxiliaries of the Chapter; en- 
rolled the different classes of members and filed 
the records; renewed magazine subscriptions, and 
corrected irregularities of all departments. 

The Chairman of this desk and her committee 
handled a large amount of petty cash and received 
most of the cash donations and receipts from bene- 
fit entertainments for the first several months of the 
Nashville Chapter's activities, and up to April. 
1918, at which time Mrs. Van Lee Kirkman was 
made Chairman of a Benefit Entertainment Com 
mittee to relieve the Information Desk of this m»- ti)n»Bn n. t»ie 

branch of service, which, by that time, had grown **''"" '*"'""" 

to such large proportions. Fees were received and accounts rendered at this desk 
for the Educational and Nursing Service Committee, for classes in First Aid, Home 
Nursing and Elementary Hygiene, Dietetics, and for lessons in Surgical Dressings 
in the Woman's Work Department of the Chapter. 

I\eceipts were turned in each week to a cashier ap- 
pointed by the Nashville Chapter Accounting Depart- 
ment and the records showed amounts varying from 
one cent to three hundred dollars. Cash, itemized 
receipts were turned in by the Cashier every month to 
the Treasurer of the Chapter. Mrs. H. H. Corson 
served as Cashier for the organization until January, 
1918, at which time a Finance Committee was formed, 
who took charge of the work. 

An information desk was maintained at the Ten- 
nessee State Fair in 1917 by the Nashville Chapter, 
Red Cross, and was of great benefit in giving infor- 
mation to the throngs of Tennesseans from everv 
county in the State who sought knowledge of the 

Mrs William \ Carter WOrk of the Red CrOSS. 

(Annie Bruce) After Juue. 1918. the work of the Information Desk 

was much simplified and all its activities were carried 

on bv one member of the Committee in charge. The following women were mem 

bers of the Committee who served at the Information Desk of the Nashville Chapter 

Red Cross, during the war: 

Mrs. E. O. Tate. Chairman: Mrs. William Carter. Mrs. J. M. Anderson. Mrs. Val Taylor. 
Mrs. Charles Davitt. Mrs. John Kreig. Mrs. H. P. Thomas. Mrs. Bernard Fensterwald. Mrs. Claude

day to the Executive Secretary and her assistants in their rounds of visits to soldiers' 
and sailors' families, and assisted the Emergency Canteen Service in transporting 
sick soldiers to hospitals from trains and in carrying supplies for this and other

ly. Speakers and workers for the Liberty Loan and War Work Campaigns were 
transported to and from designated places. A large number of patients, in addition 
to the influenza patients, were taken to hospitals, including tlie Tuberculosis Hos- 
pital. City Health Department and the Clinics. Requests for help from the Charity 
Commission and Y. W. C. A. were answered promptly.

over to that committee. The ambulance body, litters, blankr 

packages were stored away so that if an emersiem \ an-i- the Nashville Chapter, 

Red Cross, can again have the ambulance complelc. Diniim ten months of service 

approximately 3,800 hours of service were given b\ the members of the Motor 

Corps and 18,000 miles covered. 

Although the work of this department required strict regulaticns and was often 
heavy in its exactions, it was characterized by a spirit of harmony and helpfulness 
which made it a very potent factor in the war work of Davidson County women and 
a pride to local Red Cross officials. The unquestioned obedience to superior officers 
and the intelligent method of <airviii,Li out (Mimmands made the Motor Corps an 
efficient machine for service wiiirh was imt surpassed iiy any other body of local 
war workers. 

On August 13. 1917. headquarters were established at 226 Sixth Avenue, North, 
and thereafter an officer of the day was on duty from 9 o'clock in the morning to 
5 in the afternoon, to receive and assign calls and to make out and sign instruction 
slips. When instructions had been carried out the drixer made report of time and 
mileage, and the information was filed. 

Between the date of organization and January 1, 1919, Mrs. Howell Warner 
became a member of the First Division and Mrs. Bernard Fensterwald, Miss Percie 
Warner, Miss Frances Bennie, Mrs. Vance Alexander, Miss Ellen Stokes, and Miss 
Regina Lightman resigned. Mrs. Innis Brown was commissioned First Lieutenant 
December 11, 1918, and Miss Margaret Tolmie. Second Lieutenant. January 7, 1919. 

In September, 1918, Mrs. Innis Brown and Miss Frances Bennie drove through

Christmas Parcels for A. E. F., 1917. Nashville 
Chapter, A. R. C. 

Mrs. W. L. Gkanbkry. Cluilniiiin 
Mrs. Walter Stokes. Jr.. I'icc-C.liainnan 

Christmas, 1917, was celtlnatrd liv Amelia with a li(a\ \ licart. for her thoughts 
and prayers were across the sta> uitli llic -oMIits who ucn- liiihtiim the battles of 
civilization in France. 

In order to show these far-away heroes that the loyal hearts back home were 
mindful of them at this yearly festival, and to avoid congestion of the mails with 
parcels that would not be wisely selected for such long transportation, the Red 
Cross selected a Christmas Parcels Committee, whose duties would be to issue in- 
structions as to acceptable packages, to furnish transportation boxes and to wrap, 
address and mail them for the thousands of families and friends of the soldiers in 
Davidson County. 

Mrs. William L. Granberv. Chairman, and Mrs. Walter Stokes. Jr.. \ i.e-Chair- 
man, opened headquarters at the Tulane Hotel, and their committees worked con- 
stantly for six weeks from 9 to 5:30 o'clock in the day and from 7 to 10 o'clock 
in the evening in order to accommodate the enormous number of applicants. 

Each box had to be given out with exact instructions as to what contents would 
be acceptable, a receipt taken for same and. when returned, the box was weighed, 
inspected, wrapped and addressed with an overseas label, on which appeared the 
name of the sender and that of the inspector, stamped, counted and placed in the 
mail bags for the parcel postman, who was compelled to come twice each dav to 
relieve the congestion. Three thousand eight hundred fifty-eight of these Christmas 
parcels were mailed from the Tulane Headquarters, and as twentv-five of them filled 
one mail bag. several hundred bags were filled. 

Mrs. Joseph Lindauer served as purchasing agent for supplies, Mrs. W. E. Beard 
and Mrs. B. Kirk Rankin. Publicity, and Mrs. George Hillman, Cashier. Assistant 
cashiers were: Mrs. William Orr. Mrs. J. Knox Polk. Mrs. Lou Rascoe. Mrs. H. H. 
Corson, Mrs. E. W. Foster, Miss Lucy Roberts. Miss Prudence Polk, and Miss Lillian 
Taylor. 

A large committee was necessary day and night to assist Mrs. Granberv and 
Mrs. Stokes in starting the boxes on their long journey. In addition to those already 
mentioned tliere were the following assistants;

DAVIDSON COUNTY WOMEN IN THK II O R I. I) WAR. I " I II " I 9 

Committee on Awards, Nashville Chapter, A. R. C. 

Mrs. P'ka^jk W. Ring. CJimnnan 




Awarded Davidson County women who 
rendered faithful and self-sacrificing 
service in the Nashville Chapter. Red 
Cross. 



On February 1. 1919, a message came from the Division Headquarters, at At- 
lanta, Ga., that Service Badges would be given faithful and self-sacrificing workers 
of the Nashville Chapter, Red Cross. While only those who were fortunate enough 
to be able to give the required hours could obtain a badge, officials of the Nashville 
Chapter felt that the hundreds of women who were unable to leave their homes for 
the length of time required to secure a badge were none the less patriotic, and that 
their services were none the less appreciated. 

Upon instructions from National Headquarters, at Washington. D. C. a Cduunit- 
tee on Awards was ap|ic>intcd In the Executive Board of the Nashville Chapter,

Sixth Avenue. North, which was converted into a rest room for soldiers, sailors and 
marines, with Mrs. Granbery Jackson in charge of the hostesses and Mrs. Thomas 
J. Tvne as Chairman-General of the rest room. This building was obtained through 
the generosity of Vaulx Cowan, and contributions of furnishings and comforts for 
the rest room were made by the following members: 

Coal by Mrs. Jesse M. Overton; Overbrook Spring Water by Mrs. J. W. Black 
and Mrs. Joseph Warner; and Ice by Mrs. Fielding Gordon. Mrs. Mary Bright 
Thomas and Mrs. George William Fall were Chairmen of furnishings for the 
room. Mrs. Thomas J. Tyne served as Chairman-General for the rest room through- 
out its existence and Mrs. Granbery Jackson as Chairman of hostesses, which was 
eighteen months. 

Through Mrs. Jackson's committee many attractive musical programs and other 
forms of entertainment were offered the soldiers passing through Nashville, and 
the room was always kept in an attractive manner. A victrola was secured by Mrs. 
George W. Fall and a piano from "'a friend." which gave the transient soldiers many 
cheerful moments. Through an arrangement with the Nashville Y. M. C. A., the 
Service League paid for a number of meals to be served to the soldiers who were 
without funds. Stationery and post cards were kept at the rest room headquarters 
at all times for the soldiers, and automobile rides through Nashville and surround- 
ing country were planned for them. An abundance of flowers for the rest room 
were donated by Nashville florists and from private gardens of the members. On 
the register kept by the Service League at the soldiers, sailors and marines' rest 
room appeared the names of the famous "Blue Devils" and the Alpines, who visited 
Nashville in the interest of war work. The register also showed the names of sev- 
eral hundred soldiers who were benefited by the rest room, many of whom were 
cared for bv League members during illness.

Woman's Service sponsored two Davidson County 
heroes for the Memorial for which the Kiwanis Club 
of Nashville was raising funds in 1919. This or- 
ganization has the distinction of being the first one 
in Davidson County to spread the glad news of the 
imminence of the signing of the Armistice. The 
news came at the time of the League's regular 
monthly meeting. The moment the glad tidings 
were received a committee of the Service League's 
members, led by Mrs. Granbery Jackson. Mrs. John 
G. Gilmore, Mrs. Frank Searcy Green, Mrs. Nathan 
Crockett, and Mrs. Charles Anderson, made their 
way to the various department stores and public 
'"""'"" '"'"'' buildings of Nashville, and in less than an hour's 

ime were leading a parade several miles long, urging every person in sight to fall 







Those who were responsible for the splendid work (i 
.Oman's Service in Davidson County, which was one of 
ons in the county to cease activities, were the following

Mrs. Overtoil and I\lrs. KirklancI were active in assisting Mrs. iSeely with the 
organization of volunteer salesladies each day for the various departments and in 
the soliciting of donations. The Executive Board selected department heads from 
the membership of the League for Woman's Service, the Colonial Dames and the 
\anderbilt Aid Society. The Kiwanis Club members gave the management of the 
store the same splendid assistance they rendered in the drive for old tires. 

For several weeks previous to the opening of the War Salvage Store Mrs. Neely 
and Mrs. Gulbenk worked untiringly, putting the store in order, receiving and sort- 
ing the thousands of donations 
and arranging them in such 
manner that the place resembl 
a modern department store 
opening day. Each departnu 
of this enterprise was conduct 
in so businesslike a manner tl 
the management received favi 
able comment from many of I 
business firms of Nashville am 
from their department slm 
"competitors." Mrs. G. M 
Neely personally directed eai I 
department, and Mrs. SmitI 
Tenison, Mrs. Frank C. Stall 
man and Mrs. J. A. Dale, c<n 
verted their private automobilt^ 
into service trucks to gather u 
the articles donated by the fani 
lies of Davidson County. 

In addition to these three vn 
unteers, those assisting in a- 
sembling the stocks for the stun 
were: Ed. Polk, who furnishei 
trucks, the Tennessean Publi 
ing Company, and R. A. Gul 
benk Engraving Company. 

Mrs. R. A. Griffin. Chairman ^,^ ^. 

of the Rummage Sales for the i.\i,i,i„,i \i,t,,iii 

War Salvage Store, conducted 

tliree very successful sales in different parts of Nashville. Assisting Mrs. Griffin in 
this work were: Mrs. G. M. Neelv, Mrs. R. A. Gulbenk. Miss Elizabeth Eve. Mrs. 
F. Searcy Green, Mrs. J. A. Dale, Mrs. H. B. Bond, and Mrs. Jesse H. Thomas. The 
latter three also served as Chairmen of telephone committees to solicit offerings 
for the Store. 

On November 15. 1918, the Store «a- I'nimallv opened to the public, and due to 
the extensive advertising campaign wliicli had been conducted for several weeks 
previously, crowds lined the sidewalks in front of the building long before the time 
for opening. A band furnished music on opening day, and SI. 000 was the result 
of the first day"s sales. The proceeds were given to the United War Work Campaign 
which was beinn conducted in Davidson Countv at the same time.

DAVIDSON COUNTY WOMEN IN THE WORLD WAR. 1914-1919 



Christening of the Battleship Tennessee 




Miss Helen Roberts as she appeared christening 

"The Battleship Tennessee." the largest ship 

in the V. S. Na\T to date. 



On April 30. 1919. the super-dreadnaught "Teniiessee"' was launched from tl 
ways in New York in the presence of an assembly of over .50.000 spectators. Mi: 
Helen Roberts, daughter of Governor and Mrs. Albert H. Roberts, of Tennesse 
christened the gigantic fighting craft with possibly the last bottle of champagne 
that will ever be used in a formal christening in our Navy. Governor Roberts. Miss 
Helen Roberts and her party were guests of honor on this occasion. Acting Secre- 
tary of the Navy Franklin Roosevelt presided over the ceremonies. 

It was a marked tribute to the grand old Volunteer State, which has always 
sponded so readily to the needs of her country in war times, that the mightiest 
fighting ship ever constructed by the American Navy should bear the name of Ten 
nessee. 

Miss Roberts selected her maids from various sections of the State, and was the 
recipient of numerous congratulations from every countv in Tennessee and from 
many European countries.

The illustration on the opposite page, "Columbia Calls Her Women," is a reproduction of the 
handsome white satin banner designed and presented to the Tennessee Division, Woman's Com- 
mittee. Council of National Defense, by Mrs. Idabelle Wilson, State Chairman of Educational 
Propaganda and Patriotic Meetings, This banner answered a two-fold purpose: It was efifec- 
tively shown at every large patriotic gathering in Davidson County during the World War 
period in order to present to the public the correct propaganda in regard to the purpose of 
the Woman's Committee, and was later presented by Mrs. Idahelle Wilson and her Executive 
Board to the State of Tennessee to be used in the Tennessee Memorial Hall, when completed. 

The sword pictured on the banner is a reproduction of the gold sword presented to Ten- 
nessee's and the South's greatest hero. General Andrew Jackson, by the people of his State in 
recognition of his heroic services in the battle of New Orleans, which fact givs the banner a 
double significance^ historically. 

The page was made possible for this History by Mrs. Idabelle Wilson in memory of every 
woman war worker of Tennessee.

DAVIDSON COUNTY WOMEN IN THE If'ORLD WAR. 1 9 1 II 9 1 -J 

nothing finer in spirit or effeit than the service whicli tlie women oi" the United 
States rendered during the World War. In her very nature woman is an instrument 
of sacrifice. By circumstance and hahit. and perhaps also by nature, women are 
accustomed to self-effacement. As a rule her chief thought is the thing to be ac- 
complished; her least thought is her own welfare. Tiie greatest factor of success 
in war is sacrifice — not the sacrifice of burnt offering but the sacrifirp of comfort, 
of well-being, and, if need be. of self. 

"Hence it is that woman entered the war already trained in the psvchologv of 
war as it governs or influences personal conduct. It is not her privilege to engage 
in the adventures of war, to perform the thrilling feats on land and sea and in the 
air which make war appeal to the mind of man as a great emprise, and which in 
some degree compensate him for his sufferings and sacrifices. 

"Woman's service was none the less vital, and assuredly not the lesser part of 
the big task which was undertaken to save our republic, and to save freedom in the 
world." 

The Tennessee Division of this powerful organization was perfected in July, 
1917, at a mass meeting at the Tennessee State Capitol, with representatives from 
every county and every woman's organization in the state. Miss Louise G. Lindsley 
presided over this conference as Temporary Chairman, and Mrs. George W. Denny, 
of Knoxville, was elected State Chairman by this body of women. Mrs. Leslie 
Warner was elected State Vice-Chairman-at-large. An Executive Board, consisting 
of a vice-chairman from each section of the state, was formed, and Miss Louise 
Grundy Lindsley was chosen Vice-Chairman from Middle Tennessee. 

Other officers elected who resided in Davidson County were: Mrs. Alex. S. 
Caldwell, Food Conservation; Mrs. Leo Schwartz. Social Service; Mrs. Eugene 
Crutcher, Child Welfare; Miss Delia Dortch. Home and Foreign Relief; Mrs. 
Claude D. Sullivan. Hygiene and Sanitation; Mrs. Idabelle Wilson, Educational 
Propaganda and Patriotic Meetings; Mrs. Guilford Dudley, Liberty Loans; Mrs. 
John M. Kenny, Publicity; Mrs. B. F. Wilson. Chairman of State Advisory Board; 
and Mrs. Margaret Erwin Ford. Treasurer. 

Mrs. B. F. Wilson selected a large committee for her state board, drawn from 
every section of Tennessee. Members chosen by her from Davidson Countv were 
Mrs. E. W. Cole and Mrs. Jesse M. Overton. Mrs. Wilson also served as Chair- 
man of the organization's State Headquarters, which were opened by the officials 
on Sixth Avenue, North, Nashville. Tenn. The building was donated through the 
efforts of Mrs. Idabelle Wilson, who, with Mrs. B. F. Wilson and Mrs. John M. 
Kenny, contributed a large amount of the furnishings. At all times a complete 
state organization was maintained at this headquarters. The Publicity Department 
issued monthly bulletins to every county in Tennessee, which served to co-ordinate 
every department of the state work. Mrs. John M. Kenny, Chairman of this work, 
was assisted in the editing and publishing of the bulletins by Mrs. H. H. Corson. 
Chairman of Publicity for the Nashville Chapter of American Red Cross. Mrs. 
B. F. Wilson, as. Chairman, kept a coterie of workers at the State Headquarters 
each day. whose duties were to receive all World War soldiers and sailors passing 
through Nashville and to render whatever assistance and comfort was necessary. 
Her committee also served as a bureau of information for the state department. 

A number of beautifully planned receptions for transient soldiers were given at 
the State Council of National Defense Headquarters of the Woman's Committee dur- 
ing the World War. Each state officer had her individual desk, and the entire state

Tug of the most influential committees in Tennessee were formed as a result of 
the inspiration received from the Woman's Committee Convention, namely, the Giles 
County Woman's Committee and the Montgomery County Committee. Mrs. Willa 
Blake (Edward E.I Eslick. of Pulaski. Tenn., was Chairman for Giles County, and 
Mrs. Moore Dickson, of Clarksville, Tenn., was Chairman for Montgomery County. 
The work of these two county committees received Certificates of Commendation 
from National Headquarters, at Washington, D. C. 

When Mrs. George W. Dennv, State Chairman of this organization, received her 
appointment for overseas duty, Mrs. Leslie Warner, State Vice-Chairman-at-Large. 
directed the entire state work until the close of the war period. Mrs. Leslie Warner, 
one of the most convincing speakers in Tennessee, visited every county and spoke 
throughout the state on every phase of World War activities. Mrs. John M. Kenny 
was awarded a Distinguished Service Certificate by Congress in recognition of her 
World War services rendered in this organization. Mrs. Alex. Caldwell originated 
food conservation ideas long in advance of Herbert Hoover, and her work along 
this line gained national recognition. 

Mrs. Idabelle Wilson organized in the Nashville colleges the first Victory 
Chorus in the state and served as Chairman for the West End section of Nashville 
for the Student Nurses' Drive, War Sufferers' Campaign and the several Liberty 
Loan campaigns, always with success. She spent the first few months of the World 
War period in New York, where her work with the Emergency Canteen. Red Cross 
and Liberty Loan campaigns gave her a larger scope for ideas to serve in the relief 
drives at home. After her return to Nashville she worked in every relief drive in 
Davidson County, and. as a member of the Advisory Council of this volume, raised 
an immense sum for the pulilication of the records as Chairman-Genera! of tlie 192.'? 
Mardi Gras Ball.

county. As State Chairman of Belgian Relief she personally directed a campaign 
which resulted in securing $60,000 for that cause. In recognition of this service 
Miss Dortch received personal congratulations from the Minister of Belgium. She 
was one of the inspirers of the splendid patriotic service rendered by the school 
teachers of Nashville and Davidson County, and Miss Dortch s?:-ved as Chairman 
of the Nashville Equal Suffrage Association for the first Red Cross campaign. 

Mrs. Eugene Crutcher. State Chairman of Child Welfare for Woman's Commit- 
tee. Council of National Defense, and State Chairman for Parent-Teacher Associa- 
tion, was awarded the Children's Year Medal bv the Child Conservation Section of 
the Field Division of the United States Council of National Defense and the Chil- 
dren's Bureau of the United States Department of Labor, a reproduction of which 
is shown in an illustration with Mrs. Crutcher's picture. 

Mrs. Leo Schwartz answered every call, alwavs performing her dulv with ef- 
ficiency. She worked untiringly, both as an official and private, and as the War 
President of the Council of Jewish Women, Mrs. Schwartz furnished a large number 
of capable workers for every campaign. She inspired to a large degree the large 
amount of work accomplished by the women of her committee. 



Ki-wanis Club, Book Campaign 

Mrs. James S. Frazer. Chairman 
Mrs. Jordan Stokes. Jr.. Chairman of HeadquurteTs 

The Kiwanis Club of Nashville, which did notable work in every movement and 
drive during the war, put on a book drive for the soldiers in November, 1917, with 
Mrs. James S. Frazer serving as Chairman-General. Mrs. Frazer and her commit- 
tee used the telephone system in soliciting books, so that every family in Davidson 
Countv who had a telephone was reached and asked for donations. More than 
10.000 volumes were collected by Mrs. Frazer's workers, who called for the books 
in automobiles and assembled them in the office of Brandau. Craig. Dickerson Com- 
pany, on Fifth Avenue. 

This firm not only gave space for the immense amount of books. Jnit kept a man 
to receive and store them. The large number of Ixioks donated overflowed the 
huge establishment of this generous firm. 

Mrs. Jordan Stokes, Jr., acted as chauffeur for several days in collecting the 
books. Other assistants were Mrs. Frazer's Executive Board of the Nashville 
Woman's Committee. Mrs. Vernon Sharp. Sectional Chairman of East Nashville, 
who had one of the most complete ward organizations in the citv. served as Chair- 
man of the Telephone Committee for the drive, assisted by the members of the Fast 
Nashville organization. 

Mrs. Walter Jones. Airs. West H. Morton and Mrs. Lyon Childress assisted the 
Kiwanis Club members in assorting the volumes. From the numerous expressions 
of appreciation received by the Kiwani Club of Nashville from the soldiers and 
army officials in the camps, no other war work done in the county proved a greater 
personal benefit to the thousands of boys in khaki than the book campaign.

DAVIDSON COUNTY WOMEN IN THE WORLD IX A li. 1 9 1 t-l Q I <> 

After registration clay, which followed this meeting by one week, over 2.500 
names were recorded as active members, and an organization of all the districts 
of Davidson County was completed. From then until peace was declared the David- 
son County Woman's Committee measured up tn the hiL'hi'st slamlaril- in ethics. 
efforts and results, and its members were nunilierrd amcuii; llic tiici^t |)alii(itic and 
libertv-loving women of Tennessee. 

The following women composed the personnel of the officers of the Davidson 
Countv organization of the Council of National Defense, proving one hundred per 
cent perfect in everv war movement: Mrs. Rachel Jackson Lawrence. Honorary 
Chairman; Mrs. Robert Wharton Nichol, Active Chairman; Mrs. Katherine P. 
\\ right. Vice-Chairman: Mrs. West Humphreys Morton. Treasurer; and Mrs. George 
H. Williams, Secretary. 

Sub-chairmen appointed by Mrs. Nicliol. who were also niendiers of the Ad- 
visory Board, were: 

Mrs. Lemuel R. Campbell. Mrs. Sadie M. Corson, Mrs. James C. Bradford, Mrs. Charles W. 
Baker, .Mrs. W. W. Dillon, Mrs. Adair Lyon Childress, Mrs. Richard T. Wilson. Mrs. Carey A. 
Folk. -Mrs. James B. Totten, .Mrs. Alloway Gray. Mrs. Ellen Marshall. Mrs. Willie F. Acree. Mrs. 
Carey E. Morgan. Miss Mary Lewis, Miss Mollie .\I. Claiborne, and Miss Julia Green. 

The fourteen District Chairmen of the organization were:

Frank D. Fuller and Mrs. Edward Craig, Jr.. Fourth District; Mrs. Thomas Calhoun, Fifth 
District; .Mrs. James K. Rains, Sixth District; Mrs. Charles C. Gilbert, Seventh District; Mrs.

with Mrs. Lizzie Paltnn as Sub-Chairman. 

Miss Margaret Early was appointed by Mrs. Nichol Chairman of the children's 
work of Davidson County, and the work accomplished bv her and her conmiittee 
was very pleasing to officials. 

Reports of Mrs. West Humphreys Morton, the County Organization's Treasurer, 
show that .86.000 was raised by the county districts by means of various campaigns 
for funds and through personal gifts, and that all expenses of headquarters, at 171 
Eighth Avenue. North, were borne by the executives of the Nashville and Davidson 
County Board of the Woman's Conmiittee. 

A sale of the Southern Woman's Magazine on December 1, 1917, by the County 
Organization, assisted by the Boy Scouts and children of the county throughout each 
district, resulted in a generous sum for the treasury. Every member of the organi- 
zation also actively supported this cause. 

On January 1, 1918. a New Year's reception was given at the home of Mrs. .\dair 
Lyon Childress, sponsored by the County Woman's Committee, and a substantial 
sum was realized in the nature of a free-will offering from the guests. 

A brilliant Patriotic Musical was given on March 4. 1918. at the residence of Mrs. 
Frank Carl Stahlman for the benefit of the "Wool Fund." Mrs. Stahlman served 
as Chairman of the Musical, with Mrs. Harry W. Evans as Vice-Chairman and Mrs. 
William C. Hoffman as Chairman of Program. Selections were rendered bv Mrs. 
Thomas H. Malone. Jr., Charles Stratton, Mrs. Milton Cook and Mrs. W. C. Hoff- 
man. Several hundred tickets were sold by Mrs. Stahlman and her committee, and 
the largest donation received by this organization throughout the war was the result 
of this musical. Many new patriotic songs were heard in Nashville for the first 
time at this entertainment.

county women, during their stay in Nashville. 

A group of soldiers en route to a northern camp was entirely fitted out with 
woolen comforts by the County Organization. Frequent calls from the Nashville 
Chapter Emergency Red Cross Canteen for woolen articles were received and were 
always furnished at a moment's notice. Sweaters, socks and helmets were sent to 
the Home Defense League Headquarters to be used by the members during their 
services in guarding Nashville. The entire Battalion of the 114th Machine Gun 
Company was supplied with complete knitted outfits, and while they were encamped 
in Nashville the soldiers of this I3attalion were supplied with toilet articles. \\Titing

the Patriotic Pageant at Centennial Park on July 4, 1918, whiil 
spectacular ever given in the county, with Mrs. Celia 
Grady Ready and Miss Elizabeth Binford directing. 
The officers of the Home Defense League and Boy Scouts 
acted as a Guard of Honor, and Mrs. Nichol was an ex- 
officio member of all committees. 

Mrs. Katherine P. Wright, Vice-Chairmaii of the 
County Connnittee, maintained a soup kettle in the fac-

iiii: ihr wiiilci of 1918. The expense of the maintenance 
of tills c(jnifort was borne entirely by Mrs. Wrigl 
the results were far-reaching. 

The County Organization distributed outlines foi 
Sunday .School work in the city, county and state, and 
it was largely due to the efforts of the children of this ^i,^, m,„,;aket kabu 

connnittee that the war work of the organization was 

such a success. Mrs. Ellen Marshall, of the Second District, arranged the outlines 
that were sent by request to many sections of Teimessee, and which are still in use 
in a number of towns. 

The Eighth District workers of the county co-operated with Mrs. John P. Franks" 
Baby Gown Committee in making garments for needy mothers, and in civic relief 
work for the blind, as well as all other campaigns. 

In the patriotic parades given by the City Council 
of Defense, every district of Davidson Countv was rep-

Floats, representing every known occupation, were featured. This parade was sev- 
eral miles in length, in which not a man appeared. This extraordinary demonstra- 
tion created great interest in registration and also in war activities engaged in later. 

Registration Day was held on October 13, 1917. which resulted in pledges from 
12.236 women of Davidson County ready to assist the Government in case of need. 

On October 28, 1917, under the general chairmanship of Mrs. Horace G. Hill, 
Finance Chairman of this organization, and Mrs. Reuben Mill-. Pulijii itv Chairman, 
the members of the Nashville Woman's Committee sold the Smula\ tilition of the 
Nashville Tennessean on the streets, which was a patriotic donation from the news- 
paper management. A section of this paper was devoted to the historic and current 
events of the National, State and Local Woman's Committees of the Council of 
National Defense. Miss Madge Hall served as editor of the paper, and Mrs. Reuben 
Mills furnished all data. Mrs. Horace G. Hill and her committee of girl newsies

\ ICTORY GARDEN ASSOCIATION 

Till.' Nash\illf \ ictory Garden Association came into existence March 1, 1918, 
in connection with the Nashville Woman's Committee work, at a mass meeting of 
representatives of all war organizations and clubs of Davidson County. The meet- 
ing was called by Mrs. Alex. Caldwell, State Food Chairman of the Woman's Com- 
mittee. Council of National Defense, at the Chamber of Commerce. Mrs. Charles 
S. Caldwell was elected President of the Davidson County Garden Association at 
this meeting. Other officers were: Mrs. James C. Bradford and Mrs. Alex. Cald- 
well, Advisory Board; Miss Emma McGowan, Secretary, and Miss Alma Oliver. 
Chairman for Central Nashville. 

The official message had been received from Washington that the South must 
not only feed herself, but raise a supply of food for the soldiers, necessitating the 
cultivation of every back yard and vacant lot in Davidson County. The erection in 
Davidson Countv of the tremendous Powder Plant, which was the largest in the 
world and which greatly increased the population of the county, made this phase 
of work more important tlian any other county in the South. A stupendous work 
was done by the ward and district chairmen of the Woman's Committee, in securing 
the privilege from the ow^lers of all vacant property in the city. As a result, over 
18.()()() back yard gardens, and over eight hundred acres of ground were put in cul- 
tivation throughout the county. 

Prior to the formation of the Garden Association a similar work had been car- 
ried on through the Parent-Teacher garden movement, under the supervision of 
Mrs. James C. Bradford and Miss Alma Oliver, Chairman for Central Nashville. 
A successful tag day was held by this committee for the purpose of purchasing 
garden seeds for those not able to buy them. Over eight hundred dollars was real- 
ized from the day's proceeds. Mrs. Bradford and the officers representing the 
grammar schools of the Parent-Teacher garden movement were chairmen of the 
day. They were: 

Glenn. Mrs. L. A. Enoch: Trimble. Mrs. W. A. Fox: Whorton. Mrs. M. M. Moxlev: Hill, 
Mrs. Lou Lusky; .Schwal). Mrs. J. C. Brock; Head. Mrs. T. H. Burleson and Mrs. J. C. Walker: 
Caldwell. Mrs. W. W. Johnson; Elliott, Mrs. C. F. Stiner; Knox. Mrs. Ed Ridley; Centennial 
Park Mothers" Club. Mrs. King Sparks. 

Miss Mary Welch had charge of tags. Mrs. Alex Irvine was general assistant for 
the day in the organization of workers. 

Miss Alma Oliver, Chairman for Central Nashville, gave manv demonstrations 
of the "army in the furrows" by supervising the planting of numerous gardens, 
with the assistance of the grammar school students. A special demonstration of 
ihe products after the garden had matured was given by Miss Oliver, and was highlv 
commended by a government official who was in Nashville at the time.

The Fatherless Children of France Society was a national organization, having 
district coniniitees and sub-committees in two hundred American cities. The Ameri- 
can headquarters of tlie relief work were in New York, and the French headquarters 
office in Paris. France. The object of this organization was to aid French war or- 
phans, thirty-six dollars and fifty cents a year being required for the support of one 
child. By contributing this amount the donor was put into individual touch with the 
adopted child. 

There were sixty-four societies in France which co-operated with the Fatherless 
Children of France Society, reporting the names of the orphans who were in need 
of assistance. Catholic. Protestant and Jewish orphans received aid from this organi- 
zation, and representatives of the three faiths were on the Administrative Committee

In tJic formation of the Liberty Loan organization, women for the first time 
in the history of the world's greatest democracy were recognized as potential factors 
in influencing public ojjinion. and were empowered to give aid to their Government 
through united effort. 

On May 7, 1917. the Sciclarv of the JrcaMnv nl \\u- I nil.d Slates called a 
woman representative to a (-onfercnce in Washirigloii Fkuii cvciv sccli(jn of the 
country, the purpose of the conference being to form a \:iiiorKil Wdman's Liberty

were opened in the Treasiuy buildinjj;. where a large clerical force was immediately 
installed. 

On May 9, 1917, tlie first meeting of the National Woman's Liberty Loan Com- 
mittee was held in the Treasury building and a plan of organization was determined 
upon. Inasmuch as the work was under the National Treasury Department, it was 
decided to organize along government finanrial lines. Twelve women were appointed 




Mrs. John 

(Daisv Oliver) 



as chairmen for the Federal Reserve Districts of the United States, with the state as a 
unit. For every state in the Union a chairman was to be appointed, who, in turn, 
would appoint sub-chairmen in every county and district. The state chairman was 
to assume entire responsibility for the work of her sub-chairmen throughout the 
counties. 

An arrangement by the National Woman's Liberty Loan Committee was made 
witli the National Woman's Committee of the Council of National Defense whereby 
each state chairman for Liberty Loan work would become a member of the Board 
of the State Council of National Defense organization, where one existed in the 
state, thus facilitating the Liberty Loan work through the advantage of an organiza- 
tion which was already in smooth and efficient working order.

Mrs. Frank Carl Stahlman was Chairman for the Three-Star Banner Campaign 
for the Second Loan, so-called because of the flag-banner which was used during the

United States Secretary of Treasury, was the occasion of a brilliant Liberty Loan 
demonstration by the Woman's Liberty Loan Committee, under the supervision of 
Mrs. Joseph Warner, Chairman. A torchlight parade was given, and thousands of 
people thronged the Nashville streets to view the celebration. A magnificent tableau 
was staged on the State Capitol steps, under the direction of Miss Pauline .Sherwood 
Townsend. The tableau represented the union of Columbia, Britannia and France, 
while hundreds of public school children sang "America." During the celebration 
Secretary McAdoo lighted a huge bonfire, signifying that America was shedding light 
on tlie whole world with the torch of freedom.

collected the large amounts. Mrs. J. W. Black served as Chairman of the Telephone 
Committee of this Loan and kept a coterie of workers ready to be called in the field 
at any time needed.

lUiolll IN \(;ri()N- OF MRS. H. O. IJLACKWOOn 

(JOSIE BELLAMY) IN THE FOURTH LIBERTY 

LOAN CAMPAIGN. 

Mrs. Blackwood, who was one of the Captains of Zone 
1 is standing to the left supervising the signing of a bond, 
which Mrs. T. A. Clarkson. Lieutenant, who is sealed inside 
the Booth has sold to the customer standing at the win- 
dow. 



Tony Rose and the men of his orchestra generously gave their services during the 
entire Loan, and all other musicians in Nashville donated their services when called 
upon by the captains, which added impetus to each day's work. 

The celebrated Alpines visited Nashville during the Fourth Loan, and they made 
a picturesque sight parading through the streets in their native costumes. The 
Davidson County Woman's Committee met the Alpine soldiers at the Nashville 
Union Station and entertained them at breakfast at the Belle Meade Club, with Mrs. 
Jesse M. Overton, Chairman of the Loan, presiding. The Italians of Nashville gave 
tliem an elaborate banquet in the evening at the Chamber of Commerce, at which 
talks were made by the Alpine army captains in charge, interpreted by the Nashville 
Italians. Officials of the Woman's Loan Committee were guests of the evening. 

An impressive and powerful appeal for the cause of the Fourth Liberty Loan 
was made in the form of a mammoth street parade, held under the auspices of the 
Woman's Liberty Loan Committee of Davidson County, in Nashville, on October 6, 
1918, in which all of the seven hundred women participants and the officials of the 
men's committee walked. Mrs. James H. Kirkland served as Chairman-General of 
the parade, which was one of the most gigantic undertakings directed by a woman 
during the entire war. Mrs. Kirkland was allowed onlv three davs in which to ar- 
range this parade, and no riding or float was permitted.
