Generation to Generation
The men and women who fought in World War II are now in their 90s. With each passing year, our nation loses members of the “Greatest Generation” whose heroism on the frontlines and whose sacrifice on the homefront helped define what it is to be American. So many remarkable stories would be lost, were it not for a group of Washington College graduates who listen and learn from the people who lived through World War II.
The StoryQuest Project, an initiative of the College’s C.V. Starr Center for Study of the American Experience, is preserving these oral histories for generations to come. Among those listening is Smithsonian Magazine.
