Anon, “Camouflage Dance Tonight” in the Evening Public Ledger-Philadelphia, Thursday, February 6, 1919, p. 18—

The annual dance of the Three Arts Club will be held at the Hotel Rittenhouse tonight. Artists from New York and Baltimore, as well as from the Philadelphia colony, will be here for the "camouflage dance."

Every phase of naval work will be portrayed In the "stunts" which will form the entertainment between dances. Three members of the Three Arts Club were "camoufleurs," as the navy called the women camouflage experts, and they have planned much of tonight’s program.

Miss Dorothea Fischer, chief yeo-woman in the League Island Naval Hospital and one of the first to enter the camouflage work, is the author of "Sea, the Vampire," one of the stunts to be presented. Miss Fischer is known as dean of the camouflage squad, because she served till the end of the war.
