Name: Smith, Shirley Ruth

Historical Note: Shirley R. Smith was a social worker in the American Red Cross from 1943 to 1945. She initially served in a station hospital at Camp Atterbury, Indiana, before reporting to Washington, D.C., in August 1943. Smith remained in Washington until the middle of the month, when she traveled to Camp Bowie, Texas, where she joined the 32nd General Hospital. In September 1943, Smith sailed to England, where she apparently remained in Taunton, England, until the end of the war. She served with the 32nd General Hospital until the fall of 1943, when she transferred to the 67th General Hospital.
