PP/MEF/01/06: Diary/Correspondence Book. France. November 9th 1914 - March 1st 1915
A medical diary of World War One
November 6, 1914.
War has begun. A medical party of Quakers, several notable feminist doctors among them, crosses to France to help relieve the suffering - to work and to learn. Among them is a young Jewish doctor, Dr. Marjorie Franklin, who will later coin the term 'planned environment therapy'. She keeps a diary, with letters and notes for the Society of Friends which has sent the party over. She visits war hospitals in Paris, including the famous Hotel Majestic. She works with mothers and babies. As the diary proceeds and she moves outside Paris, she records names, details and situations.
