  • Records, mainly 1938-1958, of a local chapter of the American Red Cross established in Madison, Wisconsin, in 1905. The records primarily relate to public relations and include nationally produced radio and television spots that were aired in Madison, photographs, negatives, and posters, and microfilmed clipping scrapbooks and newsletters. The documentation relates to general chapter activities, the Junior Red Cross program, and the Badger Blood Center, a regional blood center established in 1950. The scrapbooks document local activities during World War II and the immediate postwar years.
