About this collection

The World War I in Ohio Digital Collection includes content from the holdings of the Ohio History Connection, and will also feature content from fifteen cultural heritage institutions across Ohio—Alliance Historical Society, Cincinnati Art Museum, Clark County Historical Society, Fairfield Heritage Association, Firelands Historical Society, Hocking County Historical and Genealogical Society and Museum, Mac-A-Cheek at Piatt Castles, Middletown Historical Society, North Canton Heritage Society, Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Library & Museums, Sandusky Library, Union County Historical Society, University of Akron Archives, Waterville Historical Society, and Westerville Public Library’s Local History Center.

 

Materials in the collection capture the overarching narrative of WWI, from ordinary stories to extraordinary ones, and from the home front to the battlefront. Diverse in both format and content, the items in this collection represent a variety of Ohio voices from before, during and immediately after the war.

 

Generously funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), this digital collection is part of the Little Stories of the Great War: Ohioans in World War I project, a two-year digitization project designed to align with the centennial of U.S. involvement in the Great War. In addition, the Ohio History Connection will produce a series of educational resources for K-12 teachers, available on Ohio Memory here. Continue checking back as new materials are added!

 

Union Bibliography

In conjunction with this effort, a union bibliography has been created which includes information about additional primary and secondary WWI collections around Ohio. This resource is meant to serve as an access point for researchers of all levels and make these materials more discoverable to a wider audience. To view and search the union bibliography, please visit http://www.ohiohistoryhost.org/wwibib/.

Are you from an institution that would like to have your WWI materials listed on the union bibliography? Please complete our WWI Union Bibliography webform, or reach out to ohiomemory@ohiohistory.org for additional information.

This digital collection, union bibiliography and other associated resources were funded in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
