The Power of Humanity: The Red Cross on Delmarva

Red Cross chapters across Delmarva have rallied to offer support in times of crisis and need. Whether aiding those impacted by the influenza epidemic of 1918 or the current COVID-19 pandemic, helping soldiers on the front lines or families on the home front, or providing relief efforts after natural disasters, the Red Cross has provided assistance to our region for over one hundred years.  

The Power of Humanity details the long and varied service of the Red Cross on the Eastern Shore through historic artifacts, documents, and photographs from the collections of the Nabb Research Center.
