1917 Centennial Series

Dartmouth at War, 1914-1918

Although the outbreak of war in Europe in 1914 caused hardly a ripple at Dartmouth, debate the following year over whether the United States -- and the College -- should begin preparing for war absorbed the campus. In April 1917, President Wilson declared war against Germany and its allies. For Dartmouth and its students, the consequences were wide-ranging.
