No college or university in the country contributed more to the war effort than the Agricultural & Mechanical College of Texas (today Texas A&M). The faculty voted unanimously in 1917 to support the Army in any way possible, even offering the use of the entire campus as a military camp. It became a hotbed of teaching and training for a new kind of war: one based on technology, engineering, and machinery.
Today, the university houses the Corps Center, a museum that tells the story of A&M’s famed Corps of Cadets. The Cushing Library’s gallery and archives also provide significant insight into Texas A&M history and heritage.
