Philip E. Stegmeyer

Philip E. Stegmeyer was employed in radio service at the University of Cincinnati during World War I. At this time, colleges across the country wanted to offer support and contribute to the war effort. The Student Army Training Corps was designed by the federal government as a way to involve higher education students in becoming trained soldiers. This program had a huge impact on students enrolled at the University of Cincinnati, though it was only active from October to December 1918.
