Greater Cleveland Roll of Honor, World War II

Roll of Honor, 2 pages of signatures of World War II Veterans

The Roll of Honor contains the names of Greater Cleveland men and women who served during World War II. In 1942, Cleveland Press Editor Louis B. Seltzer and Mayor Frank Lausche invited family and friends to register the names of their loved ones into four large volume sets.

Roll of Honor (book jacket with gold letters on black leather-like fabric).

All branches of the U.S. military are represented.

The book was dedicated on May 6, 1942 by Mr. Seltzer and Mayor Lausche, then given to the Cleveland Public Library to be permanently housed once the war ended.

In honor of Memorial Day, the volumes will be on display in Special Collections, 3rd floor of Main Library (325 Superior Ave.) from May 22 through June 1, 2019.

Please note that the Library will be closed on Sunday & Monday May 26-27, 2019.
