  • Notes 
    • The photo of Harriet is from her Alien Registration Papers filed 25 June 1918. In these papers, she states that she arrived in the United States in June of 1870 and came across country to Chicago and then west. She affirms that she had been a resident of Smith Center, Kansas, since 1873. She indicated that she spoke German and English, and read and wrote English. The registration officer entered the following description: Height 5'3", weight 128, eyes blue, mouth large, chin peaked, hair grey, complexion fair, nose normal, no distinctive marks.

      A presidential proclamation of 16 November 1917, pursuant to section 4067 of the Revised Statutes of the United States, required "all natives, citizens, denizens or subjects of the German Empire" age 14 and older who were "within the United States" to register as "alien enemies." Each "alien enemy" was issued a registration card, which he was required to have on his person at all times. He also needed permission from the local registrar to travel or change place of residence. The initial registration included only men; the regulations stated "females are not alien enemies." An act of Congress of 16 April 1918 changed the definition of "alien enemy" to include women age 14 and older, and a presidential proclamation followed on 19 April 1918.
