Horned Frogs at War

World War I, World War II, and the Vietnam War brought widespread changes to American society and to Texas Christian University. This exhibit documents the particular ways that the campus mobilized students for war and military service and the ways that the wars shaped the lives of Horned Frog students.

TCU and the Experience of War

This exhibit was created in the Fall of 2022 by students in Dr. Kara Dixon Vuic’s “War and Society” history course at Texas Christian University. Working with graduate assistant Ryan Poff and Senior Archivist Mary Saffell of the Mary Couts Burnett Library, the students utilized records in TCU’s Special Collections, the student newspaper The Skiff, and the TCU Horned Frog yearbooks. Each student selected her or his topic, conducted the research, selected the featured images, and wrote the text.   

Please explore the exhibit to learn more about the ways TCU Horned Frogs experienced World War I, World War II, and the Vietnam War.
