A great school faces the Great War


In the months leading up to Cornell's sesquicentennial, our University Archivist is partnering with the Cornell Chronicle to write a series of columns about the legends and lore of Cornell's history. 

The most recent one examines the university's role in World War I -- the 4,598 commissioned officers from Cornell (more than any other institution, including West Point), Cornell's 264 casualties, the aviation ground school, and more.

Read the full story and take a look at some amazing photos from our archives in the Cornell Chronicle.
