Operation Saving Lives Exhibit on Display in First Division Museum at Cantigny Park


Galter Library's banner exhibit, Operation Saving Lives: Northwestern as the 12th General Hospital during WWII, is on display at the First Division Museum at Cantigny Park until mid-April 2020.

The content for the exhibit was drawn from the papers of Michael L. Mason and James A. Conner, who served with the 12th General Hospital Unit in Algeria and Italy. Most of the documents and artifacts depicted in the exhibit are part of the 12th General Hospital Collection located at Galter Health Sciences Library & Learning Center. These items and many more can be viewed in the Operation Saving Lives digital exhibit and in the 12th General Hospital digitized collection on DigitalHub.
