 Series 3

This series consists of printed material, correspondence, a sample of the corps letterhead, and a membership list of the Women's Relief Corps, Auxiliary to the Grand Army of the Republic. The correspondence (1889-1890) is from U.S. Representatives and Senators to Mrs. Sarah E. Fuller and Mrs. Kate B. Sherwood, secretary and president of the corps respectively, on Senate Bill 373 of the 51st Congress, which proposed pensions for army nurses. The printed material (1895-1896) details the decisions and resolutions reached at the corps's Thirteenth and Fourteenth Annual conventions, and contains penciled notes. The materials have been arranged by document type, then chronologically.
