Color print advertisement for the Dow Chemical Company in promotion of the Army Nurse Corps. The advertisement features an illustration of a woman's head wearing a military helmet, against the backdrop of the Red Cross flag (identified here as the Geneva Cross). Black-and-white inset illustrations show different episodes from the career of an Army nurse. The accompanying text, written in the first person, describes the experience of an Army nurse as "the greatest opportunity of service that can come to any woman." Smaller text describes Dow Chemical's interest in promoting the medical profession as a manufacturer of pharmaceutical chemicals. Notably, the advertisement was produced during World War II and bears the Company's wartime tagline "Dow: Chemicals Indispensable to Industry and Victory."
