Oral History Project at the American Red Cross of Northwest New Jersey

To commemorate the 90th anniversary of the Junior Red Cross, Julie Ayers, Jacqueline Joyner and Lauryn Resotka, members of the American Red Cross Youth Council of Northwest New Jersey, met with and interviewed Muriel North, age 105, at her home in Hackettstown, N.J. Muriel was a founding member of the Junior Red Cross which was started by President Wilson in 1917. The Youth Council, a part of the American Red Cross of Northwest New Jersey (Morristown), is in its ninth year of creating and maintaining Red Cross Clubs and Red Cross Service projects in area schools.

    I think that one of the best ways to use the 90th is to reach out to former Junior Red Cross members / ARC youth volunteers. It’s an idea I had in high school that I wish I’d pursued, actually – reaching out, especially as we celebrate the 90th, is not only a great way for a chapter to link these individuals with what youth are doing now, it’s a great link for volunteers to see the legacy of the organization, make history and social science curricula come alive, and to become more knowledgeable about our past, present, and future.
