World War I Draft Registration Card


World War, 1939-1945


The draft registration card for Edwin Clay Bagby. The card lists a serial number, the name of the registrant, the order number, the place of residence, the mailing address, telephone, age, place of birth, state, date of birth, the reference and their address, their employer and place of employment.

Born in Savannah, Georgia, on March 12, 1927, Bagby served in the United States Army from November 8, 1950, to November 7, 1952, during the Korean War. In addition to being scholars, much of the Bagby family served in the military. Bagby completed his service as a corporal, concluding his service on November 7, 1952. He spent most of his life in Miami, Florida. He died on April 10, 1996, and is buried at the Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell, Florida.

In 2017, the University of Central Florida was one of three universities selected to launch the National Cemetery Administration’s Veterans Legacy Program Project. The program engaged a team of scholars to make the life stories of veterans buried in the Florida National Cemetery available to the public. The project engages UCF students in research and writing and fosters collaboration between students, faculty and local Central Florida schools to produce interactive curriculum for k-12 students. The corresponding website exhibit uses RICHES Mosaic Interface to create a digital archive of related data. The public can use the project-developed augmented-reality app at more than 100 gravesites at the Florida National Cemetery, where they can access the UCF student-authored biographies of veterans.
