dc.descriptionContent written for the HS/HSL News, a blog for the Health Sciences and Human Services Library at the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB). The post was written in response to a YouTube video released March 26, 2020 by Dr. Bruce Jarrell, Interim University president about the 2020 Commencement. In the video Dr. Jarrell alludes to the School of Medicine's two 1943 Classes. This post discusses the unusual situation of these classes as well as the University in general during World War II.en_US
dc.description.abstractWorld War II began in September 1939, with Germany’s invasion of Poland; however, the United States did not officially become involved in the conflict until after Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941. Not surprisingly, doctors, dentists, nurses, and pharmacists were needed in large numbers to support both the war effort and the home front. To meet this unprecedented demand, UMB began offering year-round school in the fall of 1942 in all schools.en_US
