Following the Servicewomen: The Alumnae Quarterly kept track of all the alums in the armed services. As you can see Mount Holyoke women were represented in the Marines, Navy, Army Air Corps. and Coast Guard. They served as Army nurses and in the Red Cross at home and overseas. Worthy of noting are Dr. Orra Phelps '18, who had retired from the Marine Corps by November, 1945 and Hope Doolittle '33, who served with the Australian Forces. Also, look for our friends from the Class of '43!
