WNY Women in WWI- presented by Susan Eck

“WNY Women in WWI” Susan Eck will present on WNY Women in WWI on September 27, at 2pm. WNY women who went abroad were varied in their background and motivations but felt compelled to find a way to help the French and British armies, the Belgian and French refugees, and later the 4.7 million American “Sammies” who joined the war in 1917.
Listen to Alice Lord O’Brian and Anna Perit Rochester as they describe opening the first Red Cross Canteens in 1917, serving French soldiers until the Americans arrived. Enjoy Doris Kel- logg’s exuberance over being able to assist in a hospital and canteens. And see how Mary Belknap’s experience with the wounded and her own struggle with the pneumonia that accompanied influenza drove her to come home to Lockport as soon as possible when the war ended.
Susan Eck is a Native Western New Yorker and former UB administrator. She has been a guest curator and has created virtual exhibits for the Buffalo History Museum.
