Nassau Hall War Memorial Records, 1946-1950
Collection Description & Creator Information
In 1946 the University unveiled a memorial to those students who had been lost during the Second World War. Consisting of a bronze covered book with a page honoring each student who had perished overseas, the memorial was displayed in the atrium of Nassau Hall among memorials to student casualties of prior wars. The memorial was designed by school of architecture professor Jean Labatut, and a ceremony was held at the date of its unveiling.
The records document the planning and execution of the memorial to Princeton students of the Second World War, including pictures, preliminary lists of honorees, correspondence with parents and campus groups, and programs from the memorial's unveiling ceremony. Also included is some information about other war memorials in Nassau Hall.
