A study educational opportunities offered after World War I to Am. soldiers of the Amer. Expeditionary Forces (AEF). Some stayed in Europe & studied art, attended clases at the Sorbonne, took medical courses at Londonís Fellowship of Medicine, read law at the Inns of Court, enrolled in veterinary classes at the U. of Edinburgh, & studied French culture & language at numerous French universities & institutes. About 10,000 men were involved in these programs. In addition, 10,000 soldier-students attended the AEFís own university at Beaune, created from nothing in a few short weeks to give them academic opportunities at the college level. For a few months in the spring of 1919, this university was the largest in the English-spoeaking world. Beyond the university level, other educational opportunities of various sorts were made available to virtually every soldier in the AEF. Illustrations.
