Archive of 120 Korean War photographs and letters belonging to a U.S. Army Female Nurse
Korea and Japan, 1953. Very good. Altogether: 130 photographs (98 in the album + 32 in mylar sleeves).

One of the letters (loosely inserted) is printed on American Red Cross letterhead, written by a Japanese nurse upon her departure from the 343 Tokyo field hospital thanking someone (possibly Louise and/or her nursing group) for their help. The other is from a Korean hut maid at Tongna (?) POW Camp, dated 10/2/52 addressed to "Capt. McCloud," which is presumably a misspelling of MacLeod.

MYLAR SLEEVES: 32 small photographs of MacLoud and her Army associates, plus tourist photos of the Imperial Palace, Panama, Manila, Hawaii. Extensive photographic archive of Capt. Louise MacLeod, a Korean War nurse in the ANC (Army Nurse Corps); that she earned the rank … [Click Below for Full Description]
