Description and Context
The Durham chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority donated the first electrical food warmer to Lincoln Hospital. The food warmer was loaded in the kitchen and then rolled onto the elevators and around the floors, allowing meals to stay warm much longer. Pictured here are Marian Cordice, Josie Pittman, Lola Riddick, Pearl Cordice, Pauline Newton, Elizabeth Pratt, Bea Burnette, Sallie Norcott, Grace C. Massey, Bernadine Bailey, and Edna Spalding. Frank Scott, Director of Lincoln Hospital, is standing in the middle as he accepts their gift.
