More on Iowa-born Ship Camouflage Artist Carol Sax

Des Moines Register Article on Carol Sax (1919)
Above In August 2017, we featured a long blog post on an Iowa-born theatre designer named Carol Sax, who had taught scenic design in Baltimore, and served as a ship camoufleur for the US Shipping Board during World War I. We've since found another (slightly different) version of the same article, featured (apparently) in a different edition of the Des Moines Register on the same day (February 2, 1919, p. X7. It includes a photograph of Sax (from Ottumwa) as well as a dazzle-camouflaged ship.
