Esther Pohl Lovejoy's medals in exhibit at CSU-Sacramento

Included in our Esther Pohl Lovejoy collection is an array of medals she received for her humanitarian work. A selection of these medals are on loan to California State University-Sacramento for the exhibit The Greeks on the Road to World War I. The exhibit runs from April 1-26 at the University Library Gallery.

Dr. Lovejoy served with the American Red Cross in World War I. In 1919, she became President of the American Women's Hospital Service, leading relief services across Europe and the Near East, particularly Greece. We're proud to share Dr. Lovejoy's medals for this exhibit.
