World War I Ambulance (South Wing)

A World War I era Dodge ambulance—the donor of which actually drove it to the Museum—gives the appearance of having slogged through the muddy, trench-filled landscape of the Western Front.  Typical of those employed by U.S. forces during the Great War, it could carry four litters or ten walking wounded. A young Trubee Davison volunteered as an ambulance driver in France prior to founding the First Yale Unit, a group of students who comprised the first Navy air reserve unit and played key roles in the air war during World War I.
