In honor of those sons of The Ohio State University who have answered the call to the colors in the year 1917

This plaque, affixed to the Class of 1892 boulder, was dedicated 100 years ago this December 19.

At a somber Christmas tree-lighting ceremony on a dark December night, where President William Oxley Thompson compared the Great War to Christ's birth as greatest events in history, the plaque was dedicated to the Buckeyes who had already died in the war and the hundreds in training for or in route to the slaughter in France.

Probably no year has seen as many changes in the neighborhood as 2017: Big new buildings going up at E 7th and High, 10th and High, 16th and High, Lane and High, and Northwood and High; University City mall being completely remodeled; new buildings opening in the Gateway II development; and the pending ouster of Adriatico's Pizza on E 11th. To all those changes, add this one. On December 22, after 64 years in business, textbook store S.B.X. at 1806 N. High St. closed its doors for good. S.B.X. was a victim of the university's High St. redevelopment plans and a changing textbook market.
