Yankton Press & Dakotan
4 Jun 1938 (Evening); p. 6, col. 5-6
Mrs. Wm. Heaton, a former member of the Yankton County Chapter of the American Red Cross, now a resident of California, represented the Yankton chapter at the National American Red Cross convention held in San Francisco the first week in May. A letter covering the convention and especially stressing the enthusiasm and activity of the Junior Red Cross was read at the monthly meeting of the Yankton chapter.
Miss Adella Simonson, executive secretary, gave a report of chapter service during the month.
Mrs. H. K. Warren, former executive secretary of the Yankton county chapter, was a guest. She is now in charge of the work in several Red Cross chapters in California. She gave a stirring account of the work done by the National Red Cross in caring for suffering during the flood disaster which occurred in her area of southern California in February and of the rehabilitation work which followed.
I purchased roughly 25 original issues of the Yankton (South Dakota) Press & Dakotan, dating from 1938 to 1946. I am systematically going through every issue and will be posting the articles that include the names of individuals. I am happy to email full-size scans of any article. Feel free to ask.
