Camp Dodge: Home Away From Home, 1917-1918

The UNI Museum has received funding from Humanities Iowa, a private, non-profit state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, to host a presentation called Camp Dodge: Home Away From Home, 1917-1918 by Michael Vogt, Curator at the Iowa Gold Star Museum. A cultural Resource for Iowans since 1971, Humanities Iowa offers many cultural and historical programs and grants to Iowa’s communities.

This presentation will illustrate the organization, construction, and the various aspects of military life and training at Camp Dodge during the First World War using period photos from the Iowa Gold Star Museum’s collection. This lecture will accompany Answering the Call: The Cedar Valley, Iowa, and World War I, the latest exhibit on display at the UNI Museum. The exhibit examines Iowa’s contributions to World War I and the changes that were happening on the home front during this time. Both the exhibit and presentation are free and open to the public.

If you are a person with a disability who requires special assistance, please call 319-273-2495 in advance.
