Gold Star Men

The Gold Star Men collection was compiled to honor the Eastern men killed during World War II service. It consisted of three photo albums with photographs of each soldier and a card with information about his rank, hometown, attendance at Eastern and death. One volume was "Graduates and Faculty"; the other volumes were "Former Students Who Did Not Graduate".

The collection was just processed and digitized. The albums were disassembled and all photographs arranged in alphabetical order and sleeved with the card. The finding aid can be found here and the images can be seen on Flickr.
