University of Cincinnati Collections

During the summer of 1941, the U.S. Army invited the University of Cincinnati to organize the 25th General Hospital to serve as a major medical facility in the European war theater. More than 600 physicians, surgeons, nurses, and enlisted men served the 25th with distinction in England, France, and Belgium until the end of the war. This collection contains the primary source materials that have been collected to date documenting this heroic effort. For more information and an Exhibit with Narrative, see
