Tufts Answers the
Call to Service

This series of exhibits is dedicated to the memory of John W. Rogers, A1947. His service and commitment stand as a testament to his strong sense of community to his alma mater and his nation.

Tufts University Digital Collections and Archives presents a series of exhibits focusing on the two United States Navy programs, the V-12 and NROTC, that arrived on campus during World War II. These online exhibits were created in conjunction with exhibits on display in Tisch Library.
