This collection consists of both manuscript and printed WWI materials collected throughout the years prior to development and enforcement of collection development policies. Subsequently, many of these materials have no direct connection to the history of Norwich University. Additionally, these materials represent collections too small to warrant individual processing and housing. Descriptions of the materials in the collection can be found in the content listing.
The following subjects are represented in this collection. If you are researching these topics, try using these search terms in the library catalog:
World War, 1914-1918
Vermont -- History -- 1865-
Norwich University -- History -- 20th century
