Welcome to The Gallery. This collection of photographs and artwork introduces the people and places known to the members of the First Yale Unit during their training and service around the time of World War One. The photographs range from the marble edifice of the J.P. Morgan office in New York City to the Naval Air Stations that were home to many Unit members serving overseas. The collection of posters represents the boldness of American propaganda of the period, as well as the skill of the talented artists who created them. The collection of drawings, by First Yale Unit member John M. Vorys, chronicles the journey from happy-go-lucky Yale undergraduate to battle-hardened pilot searching for submarines from the nose of an H-16. Many of the drawings are published here for the first time.
