Welcome to the VPI in World War One Project. This collaboration between the Virginia Tech History Department and University Libraries is an online project and database dedicated to the lives of Virginia Polytechnic Institute (today called Virginia Tech) alumni who served in the First World War.
This project continually gathers information about VPI men who served in the war, with the goal of broadening understanding of this institution's role in this national effort.
The commemoration will continue on April 4, 2017 with the opening of our new exhibit, "Stories from the Great War: VPI Men in the Service of Their Country, 1917-1918." The exhibit will tell the stories of nine VPI World War One veterans who fought on the battlefields of the Western Front. The exhibit will be located on the 2nd Floor of Newman Library and will open to the public between April 4 and May 15, 2017.
