Abstract

The War Memorial records are comprised of information gathered on the Kentucky casualties of World War I, World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.

Biography/History

Memorial Coliseum was completed in 1950 as a war memorial for the 9,265 Kentuckians who were killed in World War II. UK Registrar Ezra L. Gillis directed the Kentucky War Memorial Survey project, compiling the names of Kentucky's war dead to be inscribed on the walls of Memorial Coliseum. Gillis was active in the preparation of lists of UK war dead from each war: World War I, World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. He also gathered biographical data relating to the veterans' war service. The information was used in the preparation of honor rolls placed in Memorial Coliseum, which were lettered, at least for World War I and II, by UK drawing professor John Sherman Horine and for a special edition of the "Kentucky Alumnus" published in 1947.

Scope and Content

The War Memorial records are comprised of information gathered on the Kentucky casualties of World War I, World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. The bulk of the materials are primarily surveys and servicemen cards for the Kentucky soldiers who were to be memorialized for their service. Two subseries, one in World War II and another in the Korean War, contain the surveys and short biographies on casualties from the University of Kentucky. The collection contains newspaper clippings chronicling war casualties, prisoners, honors received, and memorials for Kentucky soldiers. The List Series comprises long, indistinct accounts of war casualties, including both Kentucky dead and World War II dead. An Administrative series contains files on the planning and execution of the War Memorial, including various correspondence and inscription concepts and samples.

Collection Inventory

I. Memorial Survey
Scope and Content Note:

The Memorial Survey series consists of the forms completed by friends or family members of deceased servicemen and is organized alphabetically by last name. The surveys document information on service history, personal background, cause of death, and any other details the person may have acquired. This first subseries, the World War II biographies, are the most extensive in this series. It includes the survey and articles on Franklin Rungon Sousley, one of the six men in the famous photograph of troops raising the flag on Iwo Jima. The first series concludes with surveys on servicemen not from Kentucky, civilians, marines, and the Royal Canadian Air Force. The second subseries is World War II Surveys of former University of Kentucky Students, beginning with World War I casualty Robert Kinne whose papers were donated by Professor and Mrs. Brinkley Barnett. The other subseries are the Korean War Survey, which is in the same format as the World War II survey, and the Counties, which is organized by Kentucky county instead of last names. Many surveys also include newspaper articles and photographs of soldiers.
