A View from the Trenches: The Oberwetter World War I Collection


The exhibit will consist of up to 100 photographs and letters telling the story of Austin Oberwetter’s service in WWI.  His family has a long history in Texas and he thoroughly documented his service as an engineer in the military where he stated that he was tasked with building things “only to be destroyed by the war.” The collection also includes his letters home.
