Exhibition: Field to Front: Nittany Lions at War, 1917-1919

Penn State Scranton Library

With the centennial of World War I, "Field to Front" chronicles the role played by Penn State student-athletes in the conflict. During the course of the war, over 200 former lettermen entered the military. Representative of the larger Penn State student body, these individuals could be found in the trenches of the Western Front, in the skies above, on the waves, and in supporting roles at home and abroad. "Field to Front" shares the stories of noted Nittany Lions such as Bob Higgins, William Thomas and Levi Lamb as they left civilian life to join a struggle that had been consuming much the globe since 1914.
