The Devastated Regions. The areas northeast of Paris, occupied by the Germans for most of WW1, was over 90% destroyed.  Amongst the many efforts to rebuild and revitalize this part of France, those of the CARD (Comité américain pour les régions dévastées), a small group of American women working under the direction of Anne Tracy Morgan and Anne Murray Dike, were outstanding.  One of the notable dimensions of this work concerned the cooperatives which grew up in this agricultural region--- referred to in the name which Miss Morgan gave to the museum which grew out of her headquarters at the Château de Blérancourt:  the Musée de la Coopération franco-américaine.
