Jews at Hopkins: A Digital History

Hillel israel.JPG

Jews have had a long and largely successful relationship with Johns Hopkins University.  From the University's inception as a relatively welcoming, open-minded research university, to its large representation of Baltimore's Jewish community, many Jews have made Hopkins their home for four years.  This project exhibits different aspects of Jewish life across the University's history.  It gives a sense of what it meant for different students to be Jewish on campus, and how their identity affected other Jewish students and the University at large.

Hopkins and the Great War

1918_Yearbook 68_omeka.jpg


Often dubbed “The War to End All Wars,” World War I (1914-1918) had a deep impact on Johns Hopkins University and its surrounding community.  When the United States entered the war in 1917, students and faculty enlisted as soldiers, intelligence officers, and medical personnel.  The university’s female patrons, faculty, and students traveled abroad to participate in nursing and war relief.  Before, during, and after America’s entry into the conflict, World War I challenged Hopkins intellectuals’ ideas about the international world order, the problem of war, and the role of the university and hospital in wartime.

This exploration of World War I at Hopkins draws together materials that demonstrate the war's impact on those who lived and worked on the Homewood and East Baltimore campuses. Explore materials from the Homewood campus, the hospital and School of Medicine, and the School of Nursing to understand the complex and far-reaching ways the Hopkins community both contributed to and was affected by this devastating global conflict.
