This nurse's uniform dress was worn by Julia D.S. Snow (1891-1984), a Greenfield, Massachusetts, resident. The U.S. involvement in World War I began when Snow was twenty-six years old. She seemed to have been fascinated by the war: when the men of Greenfield were mustered at a nearby camp, she went to photograph them. When they marched to the train station, several weeks later, she was there to photograph their passage on the street in front of the house she shared with her father and mother. Soon after, Snow, too, joined the war effort as one of the 18,000 - plus women from the United States who served as nurses in the American Red Cross's nursing corps.
