American Women During World War II

World War II is the topic for fall presentations at noon on the first Wednesday of each month in the Cole Porter Room of the Indiana History Center, 450 West Ohio Street, Indianapolis.

First up, tomorrow (1 October) is Katy Huehl, who will speak on "Coffee, Doughnuts and American Women During War". Huehl joined the Red Cross in 1943, and eventually found herself working in a "clubmobile" serving coffee and doughnuts to American servicemen in Europe. She'll take listeners on a journey from Normandy to Berlin.

Other topics are "Life in a Japanese-American Internment Camp" (5 November) and "African-Americans and 'The War'" (3 December).
