The previous post on Ethelyn Myers refers to her service at Base Hospital #28, which was created through the University of Kansas School of Medicine. This is a case where there is no sense in rehashing fine work already done. Thanks to the KU Medical Center and the National World War I Museum and Memorial, an excellent history on Medicine in the First World War already exists online.
Make sure you check the links on the left hand side (for example: Forming Base Hospital #28, Essays on First World War Medicine, etc.).
Centennial Committee member George Thompson worked on this project and is very knowledgeable about the subject. I hope that if I’m doing any injustice to the subject or he has additional information, that he joins us!
