In the early fall of 2017, while working on an upcoming World War I exhibition, Framingham History Center Curator Stacen Goldman discovered the unfinished, unpublished manuscript of Gordon Ware, a Framingham resident and volunteer ambulance driver during the war. Both funny and poignant, Ware's writing offers insight into service on World War I's "Forgotten Front" in the Balkans, a place where virtually no American service men set foot. Join Stacen as she discusses finding Ware's manuscript in the FHC Collections, the impact it had on developing the exhibition, and Gordon;s story itself. Her talk will be presented alongside photographs and readings from this unfinished work of Framingham's own voice of the Lost Generation.
