LAC Profiles Yousuf Karsh and Nursing Sisters

New from LAC a Flickr Album on the Photography of Yousuf Karsh with 28 of his portraits to go along with a new podcast Yousuf Karsh: Pursuing Greatness with Karsh expert Dr. Robert Evans and LAC photo archivist Jill Delaney. LAC has an unexcelled Karsh fond.

Also from LAC, a blog post on Canadian Nursing Sisters in the First World War pointing to some published resources, including one by BIFHSGO conference speaker Sher Leetooze. It's a popular topic. September's BIFHSGO meeting will see Glenn Wright giving a Before BIFHSGO Education Talk on major sources for researching Canadian nurses in the Great War, including an overview of less well-known archival records. That will be followed by Brooke Broadbent on The Life and Times of Nursing Sister Laura Gamble, WWI. She was from Wakefield.
