KW:  The V-5, V-12 training units at Columbia University, assembled in
South Field, between South Hall (Butler Library) and Low Library
(taken from those steps looking southward.);
 Schneider, James G. 1987  The Navy V-12 Program.
  Boston: Hoghton-Miflin. 596 pp. is an excellent historical account

of institutions of learning through the exigencies of WW-2. -- not to
