Columbia University Alumni and the Military

I noted this on a list I read almost every day:

Archives & Special Collections at the Columbia University Health Sciences Library is pleased to announce the addition to its web site of the "College of Physicians & Surgeons Civil War Veterans List."

The list contains the names, ranks, military units, and dates of service of 406 Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons alumni who served in the Civil War (398 Union, 8 Confederate). It is an Excel document and I opened it easily. The website explains the resources from which the info was compiled.

The Archivist, Jennifer McGillan, also compiled a list of other Columbia alumni who died in the service of their country in various wars. This searchable list is titled the Columbia University War Memorial.
