Frank Hodge World War I Papers

The Hodge Papers are a collection of World War I photographs, journals, and documents following an American ambulance driver in France. In May 1917, while still a student at the University of the South, Frank joined the 36-man unit recruited from Sewanee. Hodge and SSU 558 sailed for Europe in August 1917 aboard the S.S. Baltic and had arrived in France by September 1917. From then until December 1918, SSU 558 served along the Western Front, mainly in the Hauts-de-France region. The collection also includes a story map following Hodge and his unit throughout France, highlighting important documents and photos related to each location.
