Mobile Hospital No. 6


Concerning Base Hospital No. 5 : a Book Published for the Personnel of Base Hospital No. 5, France, 1917-18-19
(Boston : Barta, [1920?])

Gift of Dr. Elliott Carr Cutler to the Library of Harvard Medical School, 1941




Concerning Base Hospital No. 5 was, according to its editors, originally conceived "on the same idea of a college year book, to contain personal write-ups of every member of the unit…. Steps were immediately taken to get together pen sketches of every officer, nurse and enlisted man in the unit."  While principally a biographical record, the volume includes a description of the unit's Mobile Hospital No. 6 which was set up near the front lines to treat the wounded who could not be easily transported back to the hospital.
