This exhibition of beautiful modern prints of vintage photographs and rare silent film footage brings to life the extraordinary work undertaken between 1917 and 1924 by 350 American women--all volunteers--who left comfortable lives in the United States to devote themselves to humanitarian aid in France.  

This exhibition is drawn from the collection of the Franco-American Museum, Château de Blérancourt, in Picardy, France which was created by Anne Morgan and is today a national French museum devoted to the history of friendship and collaboration between the United States and France.
