Henry Howard Houston, II, scion of one of the wealthiest families of Philadelphia, was among the many people from elite East Coast families who supported early US intervention in World War One. He was an ambulance driver in France before US involvement. When the US declared war, he went back to America, joined the 28th Division and became an artillery staff officer. He, like so many others, did not survive the conflict. Mr. Greifenstein will talk about Lt. Houston’s life and how he became one of the many who died in the Great War.
