Our research places the local history of the Great War as it was experienced and debated on the University of Michigan's campus into the regional, national and international context. The Michigan men and women listed on this site were instrumental in financing, fighting, protesting, and aiding the war effort either through their activities right here in Ann Arbor or by leaving home behind to lobby politicians in Washington or De Hague, provide medical aid to wounded soldiers or fight in the trenches. While some of the characters might be known to some of our readers, most are men and women who neither made international headlines nor are remembered in our history books.
