Mrs. A. B. Ingalls

Mrs. A.B. Iola B. Ingalls

The war effort on the home front took many forms beyond shore defenses and bootcamps. Support also came in the form of fundraising, volunteering and producing the goods needed to feed the troops and fight in the war.

In October 1916, Mrs. A. B. Ingalls gave a benefit recital which netted $170 for French War Orphans (approximately $3480 in 2010 dollars).

She is one of approximately 10,000 men and women of Hawaii who served in the Great War.
