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

The digitization of 5,000 items related to Ohio’s experiences of  World War I, including photographs, letters, diaries, journals, government records, posters and advertisements, leading to the creation of a statewide collection for researchers, educators, and the public.

The Ohio History Connection (OHC), formerly the Ohio Historical Society, seeks support in the amount of $171,849 for a two year Humanities Collections and Reference Resources implementation grant entitled Little Stories of the Great War: Ohioans in World War I. The goal of the project is to develop a comprehensive statewide digital collection of World War I (WWI) materials in order to increase access to and use of WWI scholarly and primary sources. Accompanying educational resources will also be developed, and the final digital collection will support upcoming commemoration efforts for the centennial of United States (U.S.) involvement in the conflict and the role played by Ohio.
