Disabled Veteran Student Assignment memo
After the war, the Federal Board for Vocational Education began funding the education of disabled veterans across the country. On the Hopkins campus, some veterans worked as “protégés,” a kind of paid apprenticeship where they received on-the-job training in places like the university power plant. Others enrolled in regular courses, aiming to complete a degree or gain the knowledge required for a new career path. University records show at least 24 disabled veterans enrolled at Hopkins in 1920. These documents show the matriculation of Philander Perma to study civil engineering.
