About the Centre

The Centre collaborates with international, national, and regional agencies to promote the study and preservation of memories and servicemembers related to the Great War.

We support our mission by advocating for those who have been unjustly denied high-level valor awards because of their racial or religious backgrounds through the Valor Medals Review, maintaining and digitizing Great War artifacts, and facilitating educational programming in partnership with Park University.

Untold Stories

The George S. Robb Centre for the Study of the Great War at Park University is the home of the Valor Medals Review Project and Task Force, a team of researchers and historians performing a systematic investigation into minority (African American, Asian American, Hispanic American, Jewish American, and Native American) veterans of the First World War (1914-1921) who, in spite of deserving deeds, may have been unjustly denied high-level valor awards owing to their racial or religious backgrounds.
