Little Stories of the Great War: Ohioans in World War I

The development of a plan to construct a statewide digital collection of materials related to Ohio’s contribution to the Great War, which would include diaries, journals, photographs, correspondence, historical artifacts, and posters related to both the soldiers’ and home front experience.
 

The Ohio History Connection (OHC), formerly the Ohio Historical Society, seeks support in the amount of $24,053 for a Humanities Collections and Reference Resources Foundation grant entitled Little Stories of the Great War: Ohioans in World War I. The goal of the project is to develop a comprehensive plan to construct a statewide digital collection of World War I (WWI) materials in order to increase access to and use of WWI scholarly and primary resource materials. The final digital collection will also commemorate the upcoming centennial and Ohio’s role in the conflict.
