A crew is a body or a class of people who work at a common activity, generally in a structured or hierarchical organization. A location in which a crew works is called a crewyard or a workyard. The word has nautical resonances: the tasks involved in operating a ship, particularly a sailing ship, providing numerous specialities within a ship's crew, often organised with a chain of command. Traditional nautical usage strongly distinguishes officers from crew, though the two groups combined form the ship's company. Members of a crew are often referred to by the title Crewman.

Crew also refers to the sport of rowing, where teams row competitively in racing shells.

American Red Cross - Groups - Two of the staunchest Red Cross workers in Switzerland are Remson Whitehouse of New York (right) and Joseph Cooke Smith of Providence, R.I. Both men have lived in Switzerland for many years, being enthusiastic winter sportsmen and mountain climbers. Long before America entered the war, they were engaged in relief work in Switzerland and France, and as soon as the  United States declared war they devoted their entire time to Red Cross relief work. For sometime Mr. Smith sent packages of food and clothing to american prisoners in Germany at his own expense, particularly to the crew of the Yarrowdale. He is now in charge of relief work for repatriated Italian soldiers. Mr. Whitehouse is at present acting as a liason officer between the Red Cross and American Embassy

The objects in this collection are from The U.S. National Archives. The U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) was established in 1934 by President Franklin Roosevelt. NARA keeps those Federal records that are judged to have continuing value—about 2 to 5 percent of those generated in any given year. There are approximately 10 billion pages of textual records; 12 million maps, charts, and architectural and engineering drawings; 25 million still photographs and graphics; 24 million aerial photographs; 300,000 reels of motion picture film; 400,000 video and sound recordings; and 133 terabytes of electronic data. All of these materials are preserved because they are important to the workings of Government, have long-term research worth, or provide information of value to citizens.
