All In: The University in the Great War

All In: The University in the Great War

In response to the escalation of the war in Europe the University of Pittsburgh’s Board of Trustees issued the following on March 26, 1917:

“ Resolved, That the Board of Trustees of the University of Pittsburgh place all the available resources of the University which the Government of the United States may require, in case of threatened or actual war, at the disposal of the Government. ”

With this resolution the University of Pittsburgh began its work in support of the war effort just a few weeks before the U.S. officially entered the war. University faculty, staff and students in the sciences volunteered and were assigned to tasks in support of our government’s efforts.
