We are pleased to share that materials detailing the World War I service of Donald M. Wallace (from the Wallace Family Papers, MS-92) are now freely available online, anytime, through the Wright State University Campus Online Repository, at CORE Scholar: Wallace Family Papers (Ephemera and Photographs). The materials include several official documents pertaining to Wallace’s service, a diary, and photographs.
