Frank W. Snow, a graduate of the Medical School in 1902, was a member of the first contingent of the Harvard Surgical Unit in 1915. After America entered the war, he was first attached to No. 4 General Hospital in the British Expeditionary Force and then assigned to the U.S. Army's Camp Hospital No. 12 in April 1918 and appointed officer in command there. He was transferred to Camp Hospital No. 41 early in 1919, returning to the United States in July. Snow was awarded the Médaille d'honneur des affaires étrangères and cited for his "exceptionally meritorious and conspicuous services at Camp Hospital No. 12" by General Pershing.
Snow's original photograph album contains interior and exterior photographs of the two A.E.F. camp hospitals--No. 12 in Le Valdahon and 41 in Is-sur-Tille.
