The Midwest Chapter of the World War I Historical Association covers the states of Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Iowa, South Dakota, and North Dakota, Our mission is to educate its members and the public about the impact of World War I on the political, social, and military history of twentieth-century Europe and America. The Chapter exists as a venue for those persons who are interested in learning more (1) about the historical background and the causes of the war, (2) about the collections and archives housed at the National World War One Museum at Liberty Memorial in Kansas City, Missouri, and (3) about the legacy of the war on political decision-making and social institutions as well as the fine arts and popular culture. The aims of the Association and this Chapter are to expand and deepen the understanding of the members and the general public of the 1914-1918 period and to honor the experiences and courage of those who served their countries during the Great War.
