Thanks to reader Emily, who was in Rhode Island recently for her daughter’s graduation from Providence College, for alerting me to this article in the Providence Journal about PC’s so-called Lost Class of ’44.
The story is somewhat familiar but worth remembering; a class of college students who met the call of duty during World War II, and who paid the ultimate price. Thirty-seven members of Providence College’s Class of 1944 never returned.
The Class of 1944 was honored at the graduation ceremony, and two surviving members of the class who fought in Europe were presented with degrees.
