During World War II Americans everywhere immersed themselves in the war effort. Early in the war President Franklin D. Roosevelt urged the people of America to plan and prepare for the dangers ahead. One of the programs in the Princeton area that resulted from this urging was Red Cross training. Red Cross First Aid courses were offered to citizens in an effort to mobilize them to be prepared in case of an invasion from foreign forces. On the east coast the primary fear was of Germany.
