Lance Corporal George Michaels Rowe World War I Veteran

George Michaels Rowe (1892-1976) served as a Lance Corporal in the U.S. Army during World War I. He was assigned to the 3rd Army Corps, 80th Division, 159th Brigade, 318th Infantry Regiment, Machine Gun Unit, and participated in three of the four major battles fought by American forces: The Defensive Sector (Artois); the Battle of St. Mihiel, France; and the Battle of Meuse-Argonne.

Lance Corporal Rowe was a two-time recipient of the Purple Heart, which is presented to members of the U.S. military who have been wounded in the line of duty. In addition, he was awarded a WWI Good Conduct Medal and the WWI Victory Medal with three Battle Clasps signifying the major ground conflicts in which he fought.

The artifacts comprising the Northwood Hall display were generously donated to Geneva College by members of Lance Corporal Rowe’s family: grandniece Denise Murphy-Gerber, Associate Professor of Business; grandson Gregory R. Rowe; and daughter Margaret “Peggy” Ann Rowe Ayers.
