Student Army Training Cadets, Penn State, 1915

Student Army Training Cadets at Penn State, c. 1915. In the background can be seen the "old" Old Main and the Armory. From 1892 to 1964 the Armory, which symbolized the University's land-grant commitment to offer military training as part of the nation's tradition of the citizen-soldier, stood as a campus landmark. Before World War I, participation in the Cadet Corps was mandatory for all male undergraduates.
