Scope Note

This series includes certificates in Arabic, Dutch, Danish, French, Greek, Latin, Polish, Spanish, Italian and German. The certificates have not been translated but include religious, academic, and honorary subjects.

Certificates in French are mainly honoring soldiers who served in World War I. One of these certificates of honor has the Chateau-Thierry Medal attached. The medal depicts the busts of Washington & Lafayette and the Legion of Honor on the reverse. A 1907 membership certificate records aviator Alan Hawley's membership in L'Aero-Club de France.
