Complete Honor Roll in Widener

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Honor Roll of Harvard men who gave their lives in the war is now complete and may be seen in Widener Library. In the frames in the entrance hall are the lists of names numbering in all 363, with complete information about each man. In the memorial room at the head of the stairs are photographs of all but 12.

Out of the 363 men, 170 died of wounds or in action, 89 died from influenza or pneumonia, and 50 from other diseases. Deaths from aeroplane accidents total 36, from other accidental causes 18. In other words, 139 died from disease, 54 from accidents, and 170 from wounds.

Thirty-seven men died fighting under the British flag, 15 under the French. The Polish and Japanese armies each claim one.
