From the Stacks: Panama Canal Women’s Welfare Group

We recently stumbled upon this photo of women who seem to belong to a “Panama Canal Women’s Welfare Group.” Any help identifying the women pictured would be much appreciated.

Do you remember the Panama Canal Women’s Welfare Group being very active in the Canal Zone? What kinds of excursions did these women go on? What was their mission or purpose? Did you know anyone in this group? What other organizations or clubs were prevalent in the Zone?

Thank you to all who contribute! Don’t forget to join us for the 2018 Panama Canal Society Reunion in Orlando from June 27 – July 1, 2018, there will be an exhibit about popular culture in the Panama Canal Zone on display.
