Answering the Call: The Olivers and World War I

Center for History, Carroll Gallery, 808 W Washington St., South Bend, IN 46601
The impact of World War I on the city of South Bend is explored through the eyes of local industrialist J. D. Oliver. As the President of the Oliver Chilled Plow Works, J. D. saw the war influence not only his business but also his family, friends, and personal life. The exhibit chronicles wartime shortages and embargoes, as well as the extraordinary lengths to which the Olivers answered the call to personal service in support of the war effort.
