Begun in 1910 as a University of Georgia center for student activities, construction stopped in 1912 from lack of funding.  The building stood idle until a 1922 fundraising drive known as the War Memorial Fund enabled its completion as a memorial to the 47 UGA students and alumni who died in service during World War I.  Their names are engraved on two bronze plaques under the impressive rotunda, which is encircled by the words “In loyal love, we set apart this house – a memorial to those lovers of peace who took arms, left home and dear ones, and gave life that all men might be free.”  Around the upper exterior of the building are engraved names of major WWI battles in which Georgians participated.
