Foxwell on neglected US women in WWI, WAMU’s “Metro Connection.”


Grave of author/war correspondent Mary Roberts Rinehart, Arlington Cemetery, Arlington, VA. Photo by Elizabeth Foxwell.

Rebecca Sheir, host of WAMU’s Metro Connection, interviewed me about the DC-area women included in my collection In Their Own Words: American Women in World War I. Two passages also can be heard from the book:
Excerpt, Mary Roberts Rinehart’s 1917 report to Secretary of War Newton D. Baker
Excerpt, 1918 account of Walter Reed librarian Gertrude Thiebaud
