Scope and Contents of the Materials

This collection consists of the files of Evarts B. Greene (1870-1947) relating the University of Illinois's response to World War I and its aftermath.

E. B. Greene, the head of the History Department at the University of Illinois and former dean of the College of Literature and Arts, served as the chairman of several University committees related to the war. These including the Committee on the War Aims Course (1918), the University War Committee (1918-1919), Central Committee on the Belgian Children's Relief Fund (1917), and the Christmas Relief Fund Committee (1920). He was also a member of the Committee on the History of Participation of the University in the Great War (1919-1920).

The bulk of the collection relates to the development of a course on War Issues that was required by the War Department for all university students enrolled in the Student Army Training Corps. Greene's papers include correspondence with those at other universities also implementing the course, correspondence with instructors and section leaders, and circulars and correspondence from the War Department. Also included are reports and other materials from the University War Committee and Committee on the History of Participation of the University in the Great War, files of correspondence and other materials for the Central Committee on the Belgian Children's Relief Fund in 1917 and the Christmas Relief Fund Committee in 1920 (for both Europe and China), and materials related to two national organizations, American Council on Education's Committee on Education for Citizenship and the National Association of State War History Organizations.

Marguerite J. Pease donated this collection to the Library. This collection was previously titled the University of Illinois War Service Committee Papers.
