Abstract

One of these programs was the U.S. Naval Reserve Midshipmen's School (designated "V-7"; students were known as "90-day wonders"). The bulk of this series consists of the records of the V-7 program, including graduation lists, class lists, graduation programs for classes, and clippings. The series includes a small amount material related to the V-1 and V-5 programs, and other wartime programs run by Northwestern University.
