Army Hospital Corps [excerpt]

The Hospital Corps Detachment detailed at the Pan-American Exposition consisted of twenty men and three non-commissioned officers, with Sergeant, First Class, Herbert Curtis (now on duty in the Philippines) as senior; no better tribute to their conduct, ability, [166][167] and appearance can be paid than the fact that from their number were selected three men as attendants upon the late President McKinley, during the time he lay wounded.
