Cornell History: Anti-war letter
March 18, 1915
The Cornell Alumni News publishes a letter from Georges Mauxion, professor of architecture, who is serving in the trenches in France. "Today our army is resting. We live in holes, often filled with water. Just now the soldiers of my regiment are taking out the snow which fell last night. ... In spite of all these changes I am in good health and awaiting patiently the end of this awful war."
