Caption
Fred Norton was an outstanding Ohio State University student athlete who became a member of the 27th "Eagle" Pursuit Squadron in France. He was posthumously awarded the Distinguished Service Cross and the French Croix de Guerre with Palm. Norton Field was named for this heroic pilot who was also the first Ohio State graduate to be killed in World War I. This photograph shows Norton in his baseball uniform, ca. 1913-1917 (AL04070).
