 A QUARTERLY MAGAZINE DEVOTED TO THE INTERESTS OF THE ALUMNI AND STUDENTS j »  
OF THE UNIVERSlTY'OF KENTUCKY i 1  
It was in June, l942 that the first contingent of University of Kentucky men, i ‘
Reserve ofhcers in the Army of the United States, bachelors of the arts and of the I I  
sciences, virile, valiant young men, marched off to war. l A ,
Previous to that time, in fact as far back as 1939, the University’s older sons,  
R.().T.C. graduates of other years and members of the Reserve Corps, had bee11 I
called up by smaller numbers for a year of active duty. , ·
Then in March, 1943 approximately’l,()00 University students, sophomores, * ·
‘ juniors and seniors in the University R.O.T.C., left the campus in a body, to be  
processed, sent to training camps, and, in many cases, quickly to be sent to the , , I
various theatres of operations overseas. y ` ·
Less than a year after Pearl Harbor, at Oran, at Casa Blanca, at Kasserine   I · ,
Pass, University sons were falling in battle; bright-faced, eager, zestful boys. who   '
_ a short time previously had been walking the old, familiar campus paths.   { .’
A ‘·‘Those were the days which tried 1nen`s souls," when casualty lists blared    
forth this nation’s losses and wrung from the hearts of men bitter, bloody tears.   - I
l·`rom the early days of the war the University recorded these losses, added gold i ‘ ·
star after gold star to her service flag, and followed her sons over the rugged    
fields of battle.   . .
Rejoicing in her nation`s victories, agonizing in her temporary setbacks,   ·  
proudly recognizing the contribution of her native sons, the University kept her _   Q
bloody record of 7,644 men and women in service, and 332 Gold Stars. if
This Alumni Memorial Issue is the result of that tabulation. lt is the Uni~ i
versity`s way of passing on to posterity the glorious record of her sons in \IVorld ,
\\’ar II. There is every possibility that somewhere along the way she has failed {
_ to record all of their valiant deeds, all of her losses, and with this in mind, Uni-  
versity officials have expressed the hope that alumni, families of Gold Star men
and friends of the University will send in any information which may be lacking V ·
now.
‘ Sadly, but proudly, then, Alma Mater publishes the roster of her Gold Star A `
I sons, dedicating her every effort to the young Kentuckians of the future, pledging
` herself to inculcate into their souls those principles for which their older brothers I,
fought and died.

Alumni and friends who will see this roster of the University of Kentucky
men who served their country in \·Vorld \Var ll, cannot but be impressed
with the tremendous amount of work which has been involved in collecting ·  
` and compiling the statistical data contained in this brochure. i .
lt is fitting that readers of this bulletin should know that the Bureau  
of Source materials in Higher Education, under the direction of Professor t ·
Ezra L. Gillis, has been entirely responsible for this meticulous and difficult `
assignment. .
At the end of World \t\’ar I, Professor Gillis, then Registrar of the University  
of Kentucky, assumed the task of compiling a similar list of University men who i ·
had served their country in that war. \iVhat was more natural, then, than that  
-  the President of the University should assign the same work to Professor Gillis g ·
in World \rVar Il? _ `
It has been a work of love, difficult, painstaking, and seemingly insurmount- ' ‘
. ‘ able at times, but Professor Gillis and his staff have never faltered in their deter- ` I
mination to present a report as complete as it is possible to assemble. . i · !
_ Therefore, it is with deep appreciation to the Director of the Bureau of . t .
Source Materials in Higher Education and his staff, that the administration '
acknowledges the completion of the roster contained in the succeeding pages. i _
