North Dakota and the Great War

It is our pleasure to release the first volume in the North Dakota Quarterly Reprint Series. The University of North Dakota and the Great War honors veterans at UND and everywhere by pulling together nine unique views on World War I from the perspective of the University of North Dakota Campus.

This volume documents the range of attitudes toward the Great War on the UND campus as well as the various contributions from across the university to the war effort. The centerpiece of the collection is Wesley Johnson’s recollection of his time in the trenches in France. This volume also features articles by renowned historian O.G. Libby, Sociologist George Davies (UND’s first Ph.D.), UND Law Professor Hugh Willis, and nursing alumna Hazel B. Nielson. This book brings these articles together for the first time and provides a engaging group of sources for the casual reader, historians, and students alike.

The volume is offered as a free download here.
