Remember WWI in New York State: An Atom of Interest in an Ocean of Apathy

Tuesday, March 3, 6:00pm

Dr. Kimberly J. Lamay presents:

"Remember WWI in New York State:

'An Atom of Interest in an Ocean of Apathy'"

As we continue to remember the 100th anniversary of World War I, Dr. LaMay will describe a failed effort to write a memorial history of New York State soldiers in World War I. In the immediate aftermath of the war, all of the documentation was collected from veterans around the state but the book was never published. What went wrong? Why has so little been done to memorialize World War I?

Dr. Lamay is a specialist in war and memory. Presently, she is a Visiting Assistant Professor of History at Siena College.
