Helen May Bradley, known to us as the first Physical Therapist in Missouri, answered a call to serve her country as a reconstruction aide during the First World War. She kept a very detailed scrapbook of her experience as a Reconstruction Aide. Her original album was found and purchased at an antique shop in Smithville, Missouri by William (Bill) Dunn, PT, a Missouri Chapter member. Joan Mills and the History and Archives Committee reconstructed the scrapbook and brought it to every chapter meeting for members to enjoy. The Committee is happy to announce that the scrapbook is now available online.
