St. Paul's School Archives

The Roll of Honor:
St. Paul's School in the Great War: 1914-1918

"They are our heroes." - Samuel S. Drury

In 1926 the St. Paul’s School Alumni Association published the book St. Paul’s School in the Great War: 1914-1918. The War Memorial Book Committee collected biographical sketches of the forty eight St. Paul’s alumni who gave their lives serving in the First World War. Many of the entries were written by life-long friends of the deceased, and the service record information was edited by a representative of the office of the Adjutant General of the War Department.

The St. Paul’s School Archives is making these short biographies from the book available online. Below is an alphabetical list of the St. Paul’s alumni who gave their lives while serving in the U.S. armed forces, or in many cases, the Allied armed forces prior to U.S. involvement in the war. Entries for each of the alumni have been scanned from the book and can be read in their entirety by clicking on the names in the drop-down lists and linking to individual PDF files (opens in a new window). The dates listed below the photographs are the years in residence at St. Paul’s School.
