Abstract

Clara Releder Fredere Sullivan, a North Carolina native, served as a nurse with the U.S. Army during World War I.

This collection contains an album of photographs taken during Clara's time in the Army Nurse Corps, a copy of handwritten reminiscences, a copy of her certificate of identity from the War Department, and a medical kit.

Method of Acquisition

The photograph album and reminiscences were given by Anna Sullivan Huffmaster, daughter of Clara Fredere Sullivan, in April 1988. The medical kit came from the Department of Clothing and Textiles as part of the Anna Gove Collection; it is not clear how the kit came to be there. The collection was transferred from the Historical Nursing Collection in 2009.

Offensive Language Statement

The UNC Greensboro University Libraries collects, preserves, and makes accessible unique and historical materials for learning and research. The nature of historical materials is such that some material may represent positions, norms, and values that are offensive and objectionable. These materials represent the opinions and actions of their creators. By providing access to these records in our reading room and through our digital collections, we recognize that archives and rare books can play a vital role in holding those creators accountable and in helping us learn from the past.

Our finding aids and other collection descriptions may occasionally re-use language provided by creators or former holders of the materials, but we strive to place outdated or offensive terminology in context. That said, we recognize that we may not always make the right decision and welcome feedback from all sources so we can learn and adjust our practices. Please contact us at scua@uncg.edu if you encounter problematic language in our finding aids or other collection description. We will review the language and, as appropriate, update it in a way that balances preservation of the original context with our ongoing commitment to describing materials with respectful and inclusive language.
