Loving Cup

Subject

World War I

Description

At the end of the war, veterans from Fairfield presented this "loving cup" to Harriet (Mrs. Henry) Glover. In addition to all her Red Cross work of sending supplies to the troops, she wrote a letter every day during the war to each soldier from Fairfield, going through the list of 400 until she reached the end and then starting again. If they expressed concern about their families, she would go to visit and offer needed help. The inscription reads, "Presented to/ Mrs. Henry Scheaff Glover/By/World’s War Veterans/of/Fairfield, Conn./In Recognition of her deep interest/and earnest efforts in behalf of/the boys in service/November 8, 1919."
