misc_none 6:30 PM  -  8:30 PM Pittsburgh in World War I: On the Homefront and in the Field    
    Contact: Mt. Lebanon Public Library   412-531-1912   events@mtlebanonlibrary.org
   

Join us for an evening that explores life in World War I on the  homefront in Pittsburgh and in the battlefields of Europe. 2014-2018 is the 100th year anniversary of "The Great War." 

When the whole of Europe went to war in 1914, Pittsburgh watched the storm clouds gather at home. Yet Pittsburgh was a city of immigrants--the large Polish community urged leaders to join the side of the Allies, while German immigrants supported the Central powers. By the time the country entered World War I in 1917, Pittsburghers threw their support into the war effort united as Americans. With over 250 mills and factories, the Steel City and Allegheny County produced half of the steel and much of the munitions used by the Allies. Pittsburgh gave more than steel--sixty thousand men went to war, and women flocked to the front lines as nurses. One of the first gas masks on the western front was developed at the Mellon Institute, while the city's large Red Cross provided tireless support on the homefront. Historian Elizabeth Williams traces the remarkable story of Pittsburgh during the Great War.

Elizabeth Williams is a Pittsburgh native and the college archivist at La Roche College. She earned her BA in history with a minor in marketing from La Roche College in 2007, and her MA in public history from Duquesne University in 2009. She previously worked as an assistant archivist at Duquesne University. Dr. Joseph F. Rishel is a professor emeritus of history at Duquesne University and the author of Pittsburgh Remembers World War II.

Following Ms. Williams presentation a docent from Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall will provide a "footlocker presentation" on the topic of World War  I. The presentation will focus on the basic equipment used by a World War I soldier and what a soldier's life was like in the field. Artifacts from the museum's collection will be included in this talk.
