A couple days ago, we introduced you to Lindsay Flanagan, who works as a museum program associate at the American Red Cross. For those interested in Red Cross history, the organization’s Hazel Braugh Records Center and Archives is now a part of our ArchivesWiki project. The Hazel Braugh Records Center and Archives houses the corporate memory of the American Red Cross National Headquarters. The center holds organizational records and a library collection, as well as still and moving image materials. The Red Cross’ compelling history is documented through correspondence, publications, memoirs, oral histories, scrapbooks, photographs, and video. Subjects in the archives include disaster relief, Blood Donor Program, nursing services, assistance to the military, health and safety, Junior Red Cross, and Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement.
Additional records from the Red Cross are available at the National Archives and the Library of Congress. If you have experience working in the Hazel Braugh Records Center and Archives, please contribute to its ArchivesWiki page.
