Description:

One hundred years after the U.S. entry into World War I, the Northwestern University Libraries look back at how the war shook this campus — and remember the faculty and students who sacrificed all for their country.

In addition to artifacts commemorating fallen students and a series of wartime posters by the U.S. government, this exhibit includes a special focus on Northwestern’s own Base Hospital 12, a deployment of doctors and nurses drawn from the University and the Chicagoland area.
