Betty H. Carter Women Veterans Historical Project

Since 1998, the University of North Carolina at Greensboro's Betty H. Carter Women Veterans Historical Project has collected and preserved archival material relating to U.S. women veterans from World War I up to the present. Through the variety of material in its folds, the project explores the cultural, social, and military changes that have been fueled by gender integration in the armed forces. This collection, which includes oral histories, photographs, letters, military insignia, diaries, and published work, highlights women in combat as well as those who worked in service organizations such as the Red Cross. The oral histories here are especially noteworthy, and visitors may enjoy reading the many interview transcripts with World War II veterans, including WAVES (Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service), WAAC (Women's Army Auxiliary Corps), and ANC (Army Nurse Corps) members. These interviews, which give voice to the daily experiences and perspectives of these veterans, would make strong resources for both the K-12 or college classroom. Visitors can search the extensive digitized collection by Era, Branch of Service, Type of Material, or Date.
