August 1918. "Mutiles. Paris, France. Masks showing different stages in the work done by Mrs. Anna Coleman Ladd of the American Red Cross for soldiers whose faces have been mutilated in the war. The upper row shows casts taken from the faces as they actually are, the lower row shows the faces which Mrs. Ladd has modelled on the foundation of the life mask with the help of photographs taken before the wound was received & on the table may be seen some of the final masks made for fit over the disfigured part of the face & colored as exactly as possible like life." 5x7 glass negative by Henri A. Coles for the ANRC.
