Collection Overview

Scope and Content
The University of Louisville V-12 Papers date from 1943 to 1994 with the bulk of materials containing correspondence leading up to the 50th Anniversary Reunion of the V-12 Naval Officer Training Program in October 1993. Much effort was expended in seeking alumni of the wartime program, developing an appropriate 50th Anniversary celebration at the University of Louisville, and gathering ideas from similar V-12 Reunions at other universities and colleges. Photographs from 1943-1945 are included as well as the 1945 V-12 photographic annual. Memorabilia from the 50th Anniversity program are included. These items were sold with the proceeds supporting a dedicated scholarship program at U of L.
