World War I materials included on new research site

The Provincial Archives is proud to share with you the fruits of our participation in a new research initiative, a consortium of various institutions that document the history of women religious. We’re especially pleased because this introduces to the scholarly community the Daughters beyond what is widely known — their service as nurses during the Civil War. These World War I images came from the collection of glass negatives from St. Louis that documents the history of the Loyola Unit, a group of sisters stationed with miles of the front in Vicenza, Italy in 1917.

Here is the link to “our” page.

If you click on each photograph, you’ll get a larger image. If you look closely at the photograph of the unit landing, you’ll see the “cornettes” on deck to the very right.
