Plaque from the Ambulance used in World War I, bought with money raised from Hamilton College students. Original Certificate about the ambulance in another file. “In November, 1916, ‘Max’ McGibeney, ’14, who had served in the Army Ambulance Corps, spoke to the students on life in the front line trenches and stirred up so much enthusiasm that within a fortnight $1,200 was subscribed for a Hamilton Ambulance. Five men made application for the position of driver and T.L. Orr, ’17 was chosen. He left for France in January. Hamiton was proud of being represented in 'humanitarian work on a foreign field’." (Alumni Review, v. 5 (January, 1940), p. 60)
