From the book, "During the nineteen months of America's participation in the war, the University gave itself in ever-increasing measure to the supreme task, and the signing of the armistice found it transformed into a huge military machine, its drill grounds thronged with marching battalions, its campus covered in barracks and tents, its walks resounding to the tread of sentries, its classrooms filled with the uniforms of army and navy, its laboratories given over to the investigation of the problems of war, and its members one and all, men and women, faculty and students, undergraduates and alumni, devoting themselves to their country's cause--3500 of them in active service with the colors."
