New Photos from "The Story of G.I. Joe" discovered

The nursing shortage during WWII was acute.  The United States was fighing a war on two fronts in far flung areas of the globe.  Millions of men were engaged in combat.  By 1943, it was apparent to everyone that more nurses were immediately needed to care for wounded G.I.'s.  The Bolton Act of Juy 1, 1943 helped solve that problem by creating the Cadet Nurse Corps.  The act allowed accredited nursing schools in the U.S. to accellerate their training programs so that graduating nurses would be immediately available for transfer to combat areas.  Incoming candidates in their schools would receive free tuition and paid expenes, and in return these students would be required to serve in their communities as nurse substitutes until the war ended.  These students were called Cadet Nurses. 

This program was highlighted on the set of The Story of G.I. Joe during filming in the Fall of 1944.  Cadet Nurse Beulah Tyler was assigned to the production to represent the importance of the program to the U.S. Army.  Ned Scott had the opportunity to photograph her in her official Cadet Nurse uniform in a number of poses and situations.  She was a favorite of the combat veterans from the 34th Infantry Division who roamed the set in various film roles. 

Beulah Tyler is surrounded by admiring combat vets Corporal Pappy Nowlen, Pvt. Charles Rozell and Pvt. Fred Ross on the set of Story of G.I. Joe.

Classic Hollywood fashion photo page established

on Thursday, 19 October 2017. Posted in News

 

Along with many other specialty photographs in the wider group of Hollywood stills, the Ned Scott Archive is creating a classic fashion photo page.  This page will feature photographs from the career of still photographer Ned Scott with emphasis on the last three years of his career, 1945-48.  Images posted here will demonstrate the complete command of the subject by the photographer.  Location, background, lighting, mood, props, expression and gesture  are features the photographer uses to convey an essence about his subject, and Ned Scott's fashion photographs exhibit this trait.  The result is often surprising, and always pleasing.  http://www.thenedscottarchive.com/hollywood/classic-hollywood-fashion-photos.html
