Course detail: OSH131 - The Great War at the University of Kansas

As the 1916 academic year opened at the University of Kansas, Chancellor Frank Strong struggled against years of inadequate state funding while German aggression was pulling a reluctant United States into the European conflict. KU observed its 50th anniversary this fall, and we will examine its needs, its resources and its outlook. We'll learn how the KU community met its challenges -military training, volunteer services, revamped class schedules, and the Spanish influenza - and the contributions of Strong, Olin Templin, James Naismith and Alberta Corbin, among others, in the months and ensuing years that changed KU forever.
