Wortham Museum Open House

The Wortham Military Museum at Cornell University is not a secret. But neither is it a household name. Located on the fourth floor of Barton Hall and overseen by Cornell Army ROTC, the museum was established in 1973 with a bequest from Howard Wortham, Class of 1914.

Come tour the Worttham Museum on Veterans Day, November 11, from 11 AM – 3 PM. At 12:15 PM there will be a speaker and benediction. The speaker will be Seamus Murphy.  Seamus is a sophomore in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences studying International Agriculture and Rural Development.  He spent six years in the US Army as an infantryman and served two tours in Iraq with the 3rd Infantry Division. His awards include the Combat Infantryman’s Badge and the Expert Infantryman’s Badge and he separated at the rank of Staff Sergeant.

Additionally, there will be a reception sponsored by the Veterans CNG from 11 AM – 1 PM.
