GREENSBORO — Could a war hero who lived in Greensboro and once taught at N.C. A&T win the nation’s top military honor?
Researchers at a private Missouri university are digging into the war records of about 350 American troops who were honored for their bravery but might have been passed over for the Congressional Medal of Honor in World War I because of their race or religion.
One soldier on their list is Lt. Robert Campbell, who won the Distinguished Service Cross for heroism in the waning days of World War I. Campbell worked at A&T for four decades starting in 1911 and lived in Greensboro for much of his adult life. He was featured in a recent Greensboro History Museum exhibit on World War I and profiled in August in the News & Record.
