The Tennessee State Library and Archives offers three online collections that document Tennesseans during World War I:
Puryear Family Photograph Albums (1890-1946) documents the careers in the United States Army Air Service during and after World War I of two brothers from Gallatin, Tennessee. George Wright Puryear, a fighter pilot with the 95th Aero Squadron, became the first American officer to escape from a German prisoner of war camp. Alfred Isaac Puryear spent the war stationed in Paris, France, as a supply officer with the Army Air Service, and became an airship (dirigible) pilot after the war.
Tennessee in World War I includes 90 photographs from TSLA's collection.
