Bloomington, IN

The initial training schools which opened in October of 1942 combined boot camp and specialty training in one place. Indiana University at Bloomington was selected for storekeepers (accounting and bookkeeping in Navy parlance).

The newspaper clipping from October 9, 1942, is from a story about 31 Iowa women leaving from Des Moines for Navy WAVES training. Fourteen of them headed to storekeeper training at Indiana University. It comes from the University of Iowa Digital Libraries.
