The Names in the Belltower

Over the names of the NC State students and alumni who died in the Great War of Europe is inscribed the often-used words of poet Theodore O’Hara as a broad military farewell:

On fame’s eternal camping ground,
Their silent tents are spread,
And glory guards with solemn round,
The bivouac of the dead.

Here are the NC State alumni identified in the chapel of NC State’s Memorial Tower, along with the name George E. Jefferson, who represents all unnamed alumni who served and died in the conflict.
