In 1907 Enid Bland Yandell founded Branstock, a summer art school that taught a variety of classes for aspiring artists. Located in Edgartwon, MA, the school is just one example how Enid strived to forst growth for younger artists.
Enid was living in Paris when World War I broke out in Europe, which deeply affected Enid. She put her sculpting on pause to help with the war effort. She became involved with the Red Cross, and this certificate from the American Red Cross honors her work and service during the war.
Towards the end of WWI, Enid returned to the United States and worked for the Red Cross. Here Enid joins fellow Red Cross members at the Debarkation Records Department in New Jersey for this photo.
Appui Aux Artistes (Aid for Artists) pamphlet. Established by Enid Bland Yandell and four other women in August 1914. Appui Aux Artistes provided affordable meals for those involved in the arts and their families as work became scarce with the outbreak of World War I in Europe. Appui used American contacts to raise money for the organization.
Enid continued to be active in the Red Cross well past the end of WWI. In her later years, she dedicated most of her time engaged in social efforts while work in sculpture dwindled. Here she poses with a few examples of her later works while dressed in her Red Cross uniform.
