Abstract

This poster presentation remembers Leroy Cowart, Jr, a student at Georgia Southern University who died as a POW in the Philippines during World War II. This mini-biography discovers who Cowart was. When was Cowart a student at Georgia Southern and what did he do here? What was his military service, and what happened to him in the Philippines? As a Georgia Southern student who died for his country during World War II, what is Cowart’s legacy? Research for this poster includes materials from the Georgia Southern digital commons as well as in Henderson Library Special Collections, including the George Anne, The Reflector, and different archives that highlight Cowart’s life. This project is for my Historical Methods class with Dr. Bill Allison. Both the poster and my research file will be added to Special Collections.
