Red Cross Worker at a Military Hospital, 1951
A group of Korean-wounded patients gather around to receive a few instructions from one of the American Red Cross arts and skills workers. Tours are made throughout the wards daily by these volunteer workers bringing material to the bed side and wards of the wounded to help fill in their long hours during the healing of injuries. Shown is Mrs. Charles Klinenberg of ... Silver Spring, Maryland, demonstrating how to place designs and figures on copper. Photograph was probably taken at Walter Reed Army Hospital, Washington, DC, near Silver Spring, MD. Quoted sentences are from the original caption, released with the photo on 1 February 1951.
