The original caption/metadata reads: “The Board initiated a midwife licensing program in 1931 to reduce infant mortality and to promote maternal and child health. Accompanying note with the photo: "Her interpretation of a nose and mouth mask was this cross between a tea strainer and a chloroform cone."
