Va. in the armed services and related fields together with a proposal for a comprehensive war history of the University of Virginia to be written by William C. Peden. There are also medical school war service cards for medical alumni in the service; a history of the 3317th Army Specialized Training Unit; remarks of James Hart on V-E day and Rear Admiral Lamont Pugh's speech to medical almumni "And so it rolls."
