Sunday November 11, 2018, Veterans Day, marks the 100th anniversary of the unofficial end of World War I. Although the actual peace treaty wasn’t signed until later, November 11, 1918 — at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month — is when a truce, known as the Armistice, was signed and the fighting stopped. In commemoration, the Department of Special Collections and University Archives presents an exhibit of WWI-related materials drawn from the University Archives’ War Records and other sources.
