Collection Number: COLL/275

Finding aid (Word)

Scope and Content Note

Former members of Yeomen (F), the special reserve unit of women who served in World War I, founded a national organization to "foster and perpetuate the memory of the service of Yeomen (F)." Madeline K. Johnson served as national historian for the organization until her death in 1985. This collection is composed of the material she gathered while historian of the group.

This collection was organized into two scrapbooks and a folder of miscellaneous items. The contents of the scrapbooks were merged with remaining materials to organize the collection into a cohesive unit. In her efforts to document the history of this organization, Ms. Johnson assembled a variety of historical materials, as follows: The Notebook (1929-1982), the official publication; correspondence (1933-1984), clippings from newspapers and magazines (1918-1985), minutes of regular meetings (1971-1985), photos (1918-1975), and memorabilia (1919-1979).
