  1. Veterans Day: World War I and Soldier Poetry with Tim Rives

    November 11, 2018, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM @ Visitors Center Auditorium

    Family and historical documents show that soldiers from every country involved in World War I (1917 - 1919) wrote poetry. Tim Rives will share how important and useful this soldier poetry can be in studying the experiences of American service members in the First World War. The armistice ending World War I was signed 100 years ago, on November 11, 1918. President Wilson declared November 11 as Armistice Day to honor WWI veterans. In 1954, President Eisenhower signed legislation changing it to Veterans Day honoring all veterans. Tim Rives, Eisenhower Presidential Library Deputy Director, is an Army veteran, serving as a Voice Intercept Operator and Photojournalist. He earned degrees from Wichita State University and Emporia State University. Rives joined the archival team at the Eisenhower Presidential Library in 2008 after 10 years with the National Archives in Kansas City.
