New Online Exhibit About World War I

New Online Exhibit About World War I

A new online exhibit titled “World War I and the Clemson Community” looks back more than 100 years to Clemson’s response to the United States’ April 1917 entry into The Great War that had been entrenched in Europe for nearly three years.

The exhibit includes an overview of the war experiences of Clemson students, alumni, faculty and staff, as well as the Army and Navy training programs that took place on campus, the hiring of the College’s first women faculty members, the devastating influenza pandemic of 1918-19 and the ways the campus remembered those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Many images and documents in the online exhibit are from Clemson University Libraries Special Collections and Archives.
