Request for information: Colonial Croix-Rouge archives

Dear colleagues,

I am trying to locate archives for committees of the Croix-Rouge française / Association des dames françaises that were established in French colonies, particularly French West Africa. If anyone has any insight about where colonial-era documents from overseas committees might be held (France, Geneva, or elsewhere), please email me at abwarch@ad.unc.edu.

Many thanks,

Abbey Warchol

Overdue Conversations - A Columbia Libraries Podcast

Overdue Conversations is a podcast about the ways archives inform our discussions around history, literature, and politics. From digital publishing to reparative justice, climate change to public health, this series of overdue conversations takes archival documents out of the stacks and into the public forum to consider how collecting practices, selective reading, and erasure of past knowledge informs and distorts contemporary debates.
