Ed Orser, American Studies, in the Baltimore Sun

A WWII conscientious objector camp at Patapsco that was the first in U.S. commemorated its 70th anniversary of service installation on Sunday, May 15, reported the Baltimore Sun.

The story quotes a 1977 article in Maryland Historical Magazine by Ed Orser, professor emeritus of American studies. Orser, who planned to attend the ceremony, also said that many of the men felt they wanted to do more to give greater meaning to their stand against war.

The full story, “WWII Conscientious Objector Camp at Patapsco Was First in U.S.,” appeared in the Baltimore Sun on May 13.
