(Miss), of New York City, started overseas on February 16, 1919, and was detailed to Urfa. Her experiences, told in her book “Between the Lines,” included the directorship of a crowded orphanage and its management throughout the siege of the town when Turks and French fought fiercely and the Near East Relief people were cut off from supplies and food. In 1921 she moved the children to Syria. In July, 1922, she reached America. Miss Holmes received the Croix de Guerre with palm in acknowledgement of her aid to the French in Urfa. At the moment she is living in New York City (2064 Harrison Avenue, the Bronx), and giving addresses for Near East Relief.
