The following letter was received
byMiss Clisby in response to the re
ception of the history which she com
piled as secretary.
My dear Miss Clisby:
The Division Manager of the
Southern Division has forwarded to
this Bureau your chapter history.
This document has been placed in the
archives of the American Red Cross,
and forms a permanent record of the
achievements of your chapter during
the war period. May I not take this
occasion to sincerely thank you and
your co-workers for your co-opera
tion in preparing this document?
Your chapter history, along with
the thousands of others, forms a very
valuable addition to the war records
of the Red Cross. I am sure that
these histories will reflect very inti
mately the splendid spirit of self
sacrifice and patriotic devotion which
has characterized the chapters of the
American Red Cross.
Director Bureau Archives, A. R. C.
Through the initiative and earnest
work of Miss Sarah Collett, the Edge
field Chapter, A. R. C., was organized
in the County Court House on Fri
day, December 7, 1917, with Dr. Jo
siah Morse, State Director of Red
Cross Work, to direct the procedings.
Seventy-five members were enrolled
at this meeting. From December 7,
1917 to May 1, 1919, approximately
twelve hundred members have been
enrolled. As two chapters were per
mitted in this county, the territory
assigned Edgefield in which to organ
ize branches and auxiliaries embrac
es about three hundred and fifty
; The final report of the Extensio
Committee in May 1918, showed thi
a branch had been established in
j Trenton and auxiliaries in the follow
ing communities: Stevens Creek, Cle
ora, Roper's Cross Roads, Colliers,
Flat Rock, Antioch, Red Hill, Pleas
ant Lane, Sweetwater, and Horn's
I Creek. Two auxiliaries were organ
ized among the negroes: The "Good
Samaritan" in town and Science Hill
in the country.
Immediately after the chapter was
organized, Ex-Governor John C.
Sheppard generously gave five rooms
on the second floor of an office build
ing owned by him to be used rent
free as long as needed. These rooms
?were fitted up by the chapter and are
'still in use.
