Cherry Ames, Atomic Warfare Nurse? (1952)


Perhaps drawing on the nursing shortage during World War II, the Federal Civil Defense Administration’s (FCDA) Civil Defense: Nursing Needs, is a nursing recruitment booklet to deal with “the large number of people who may be affected due to modern warfare” (p. 16).

One wonders if the illustrators of the booklet were influenced by Cherry Ames nurse series!
