The Keirn Family World War II Museum at St. Francis University holds a significant collection that captures the essence of the “Greatest Generation.”
This museum located at St. Francis University in Loretto paints a picture of life in the 1940s that goes far beyond the battlefield as told through the stories of the men and women serving from Pennsylvania. The origins of the primary collection comes from Joseph E. Keirn, a retired Command Sergeant Major in the United States Army.
Keirn is an avid preservationist of World War II memorabilia. He donated his collection to St. Francis University to guarantee that it would continue to be used to educate future generations regarding the legacy of the war.
