  • Birth*: Catherine McBride was born on 12 March 1915.1
  • Note*: She SPARS. The Women's Reserve of the Coast Guard was created by an act of Congress signed into law on 23 November 1942. It was modeled on the one the U.S. Navy had created a few months earlier, with similar restrictions: women could not (a) serve in combat; (b) be stationed outside the continental United States; or (c) be given command authority over men.

    Capt. Dorothy C. Stratton, former dean of women at Purdue University, served throughout the war as director of the Coast Guard Women's Reserve. She suggested that its official nickname—SPARS—be based on the Coast Guard motto: “Semper paratus—Always Ready.”

    During World War II, the SPARS recruited about 12,000 women, including 955 officers. SPARS and female civilian employees did most of the clerical work in the Coast Guard's Washington headquarters. Other specialties gradually were opened to enlisted SPARS, who eventually held forty?three ratings from boatswain's mate to yeoman. Twelve SPARS staffed the Chatham, Massachusetts, LORAN station, part of a highly secret electronic navigation system. In September 1944, Congress lifted the ban on stationing women outside the contiguous states; about 200 SPARS were sent to Alaska and 200 more to Hawaii.

    SPARS enlisted for “duration plus six”—the length of the war plus six months. After the surrender of Japan in August 1945, the women's reserve branches of all the services were disbanded, though the label SPARS continued to be applied informally to female Coast Guardsmen. In 1956, twenty?one women were serving in the Coast Guard Reserve. Though it continued to accept a few female recruits, the service made no further systematic effort to recruit women until the 1970s when women were admitted into all of the U.S. armed forces.

  • Married Name: Her married name was Loeb.2
  • Birth*: Genevieve McBride was born on 7 August 1911.1
  • (Witness) Letter: She was mentioned in the letter of Mary Lucy Connor on 29 December 1954; 1220 Maple Ave
    Evanston, Ill
    December 29, 1954

    Dear Rose:
    We received your nice card and were glad to hear from you, but sorry that you hurt your leg and had to go to the Sanitarium. I hope you are feeling much better now and will soon be well.
    Ann Phelan like it very much at Sacred Heart and enjoyed meeting you and Genevieve.
    It is good of Genevieve to think of having us out and I wish we lived nearer so we could see each other oftener. Right now we are rather tied down on account of Will's illness. He suffered a severe stroke almost five years ago and has been an invalid ever since.
    He lost his speech as well as being paralyzed and lately he does not see very well so it is quite pitiful.
    If you or any of the family have a car, and are out this way, we would love to see you all. I often wish I had learned to drive when I was younger - We might have kept Charlie's car. We still miss him so much.
    Well, we had good Christmas weather - It was nice getting out to Mass under the stars. The rest of the week has been so unusual with rain, snow, wind and today thunder and lightening. I'm afraid there will be many accidents.
    Father Charles Sullivan came out to see Will the Sunday before Christmas. He looks real well now but I think he has too much to do. The Jesuits work hard.
    Perhaps someday we can get together and have a good visit. In the meantime we all wish you and yours health and happiness in the new year.
    Sincerely yours,
    Mary Connor.3
