Join the Lakeside Heritage Society's Sunday Lecture Series.

Today's lecture is World War II POW Camps in Ohio: Camp Perry presented by James Van Keuren.

During World War I, Camp Perry served as a training center for Army officers and marksmanship instructors. During World War II, Camp Perry served as a POW camp for German and Italian prisoners. Italian prisoners were lightly guarded and worked alongside the civilians at the camp and as workers at various local industries, returning to the Camp each night. James Van Keuren, a summer PIB resident, is a retired professor of educational administration and dean of the College of Education at Ashland University. Jim will have copies of his book on this subject available for purchase.
