Description:
Description from: http://portraitsofwar.wordpress.com/2011/07/19/the-university-of-vermont-at-war-wwi-uvm-campus-panoramic-photo-by-louis-l-mcallister/ Photo depicts a group of uniformed soldiers on the central campus. Converse Hall is visible on the far right hand corner of the photo, followed by the hospital, Colchester Ave homes, and finally Billings and Williams Hall. Looking at the visible trees gives a good indication of the season; this photo was likely taken in the fall, after the trees defoliate, but before the dreaded Vermont winter sets in. The soldiers are wearing WWI era uniforms, complete with campaign hats, single snap button ammo belts, and M1910 leggings. These leggings were used extensively during WWI training but switched out overseas for puttees. After referencing a few books on Vermont during WWI, I believe that the image was taken in October of 1918, during the opening ceremonies for the university. I’ve added an excerpt below that helps flesh out some of the details. “The opening of college was postponed until October 23rd, due to the prevailing epidemic of influenza, which was then sweeping the country. At noon on that date, however, the new members of the S.A.T.C. were drawn up on one side of a hollow square on the front campus, and formally inducted into the service of the country. On the other two sides of the square at this impressive ceremony were the Signal School and the Mechanical School. First the flag was raised, and then after swearing the men into service Lieutenant Colonel Leonhaeuser read a message from President Wilson. The men were then divided into companies, assigned to barracks and for the first time in over a hundred years the University of Vermont was again an armed camp. “ (Source: Cushing, John T., Arthur Fairbanks Stone, and Harold Pearl.
