Blogging for the teachers of WWI

A new lead

I have also utilized the Facebook page of the Eastern History Club. Thankfully one of the members and a good friend of mine tipped me off to a professor at ECSU who has a course catalogue which explains the courses available, the workload and how the teachers at the normal school were trained. I am still waiting to hear from another friend of mine about her firefighting ancestors hopefully ill find some good material from her as well.  My thesis paper last semester was on the effect WWI had on schools in the state of Connecticut. I found that militarism, nationalism and extreme patriotism saturated the materials compared to those before the start of the war. I’m wondering if the Willimantic Normal School (ECSU) followed this pattern as well.
