McGill University at War, 1914 - 1916, 1939 - 1945
McGill University at War, 1914 - 1916, 1939 - 1945. R. C. Fetherstonhaugh. (1947)A full and detailed account of the activities and contributions of this world famous university and those of its staff and students to the allied efforts through both World Wars. The author, R.
C. Fetherstonhaugh LL.D. is not only famous for his detailed and accurately reported military histories but he is also an alumni of the university itself. He has provided a fund of detailed information about the contribution of individuals and all those who could be named are recorded somewhere in the book. What makes this book so different however are the accounts of the contribution the university itself played in its research efforts in developing new and improved weapons as well as, for example, developing new ways to produce food and new ways to combat the diseases and disabilities which always accompany a war. The book also provides three appendices entitled "Honor Roll," "Honors and Awards," and "List of Persons," which between them mention over 3,000 individuals (both men and women) and so ensures that everyone who made a contribution to the war effort is recorded. The Archive CD Books Project exists to make reproductions of old books, documents and maps available on CD to genealogists and historians, and to cooperate with local libraries, museums and record offices in providing money to renovate old books in their collection, and to donate books to their collections, where they will be preserved for future generations.
