Bertha Brazelton Registration Card, front

Woman's Committee - 1918

Miss Bertha Brazelton's information on the Woman's Committee of Council of National Defense indicates that she is African-American, however the card uses the term "colored" which was in common usage at the time. Miss Brazelton lists her minister as a reference as did many women. Her education level of eighth grade was quite common for 1918.
