"This is a W.W.I Award to Army Lieutenant Michael F. Claffey, Medical Corps. I have supporting slides from same household as the framed picture and I think he was a Doctor in Connecticut later in the Litchfield , Ct. area and also may have gone to Dartmouth Medical School. He died in 1964 at age 80. I believe this to be of historical interest. Has wooden frame and is 15 1/4 x 19 in". Weighs about 3 pounds." (Supporting slides will be shown later.)
