John Woodard (’61), who retired as the archivist at Wake Forest in 2001, was recently featured in the Winston-Salem Journal.
Woodard, who lives in Germanton, has been working on a list of people related to Wake Forest who served in the Civil War. So far, his list has 333 names.
Wake Forest suspended operation in 1862 because all but five students were subject to military duty. Part of the Old Campus was used as a hospital.
