Drew was appointed director of the Red Cross Blood Bank and served as assistant director of the National Research Council in charge of blood collection for the U.S. Army and Navy. Learn how Drew worked under the constraints of a segregated society to help all citizens of the world, regardless of their race or ethnicity. Recommended for children age 10 and up.
