A New Orleans Touch

May 1, 2012

When women got to the recruiting events, Dorothy Turnbull used creative methods to get the women excited about their new jobs in the Navy.

In this photograph, women are pulling charms from a Mardi Gras-style “King Cake.” The charms are of the various jobs the women could hold in the Navy, from yeoman to pharmacist’s mate, gunnery instructor to aerographer and everything in between.

It comes from the collection of Dorothy Turnbull Stewart.
