Oberlin Through The Years


Logan Omer Osborn ’18, the central figure in this photograph from about 1918, served in Italy in the First World War as a member of the United States Army Ambulance Corps, Oberlin Section #587. Osborn is pictured with ambulance unit members Chester Graham ’17, Earl Hope ’13, Verne Bingham (ex-’20), and Arthur Limbach ’18. Along with many of his fellow ambulance unit members, Osborn was awarded the Cross for Merit in War by the Italian government after the armistice was signed in 1918. Osborn is featured in an exhibit describing the work of the Oberlin ambulance unit, currently displayed in the fourth floor hallway of the Mudd Center, outside the College Archives. For more information on Oberlin College’s role in World War I, please see the digital collection Oberlin College and Military Service in World War I.
