Biographical history

The Junior Red Cross was a student service organization at North Bay Teachers' College. It was a branch of the Junior Red Cross organization, which was founded in Geneva in 1919 as the youth arm of the international humanitarian Red Cross movement. Branches of the Junior Red Cross were established around the world and had as a common goal the promotion for youth of health, citizenship, community service, and international understanding. In Canada, branches were mainly established in primary school classrooms under the guidance of teachers. Canadian teacher training institutions also set up Junior Red Cross branches, including North Bay Normal School/Teachers' College. The dates of the establishment and dissolution of the North Bay Teachers' College branch are unknown.
