PR Newswire: Iron Mountain And The Women In Military Service For America Memorial Foundation Announce New Project To Preserve Rare Spanish-American War Collection (PRESS RELEASE). “Iron Mountain’s financial support will enable the Women’s Memorial Foundation to digitize its significant Spanish-American War collection, which documents the superior service of the more than 1,500 contract nurses who served in the Army and Navy general hospitals, aboard the hospital ship Relief, in stateside camps, the Philippine Islands, Puerto Rico and Hawaii during the conflict. The collection includes hundreds of photographs, service documents, letters, news clippings, and irreplaceable artifacts from 1898; once digitized, the collection will be used in future permanent exhibits at the Women’s Memorial as well as for a digital, online archive that will be available for researchers and the public.”
