The 100th graduating class of the US Army War College will receive their diplomas in 2016. The source document used to make this determination is "Of Responsible Command". The first US Army War College class convened November 1904 and graduated in 1905. (p. 94, 496). In May 1917, classes were suspended as the US entered World War I, but there was a graduating class that year. (p. 119, 497). There were no graduating classes for 1918 and 1919. The War College reopened in 1919 and the first Post-World War I class graduated in 1920. (p. 497). In May 1940, the War College closed again and did not reopen until 1950.  The first post-World War II graduating class was the Class of 1951. (p. 496-497). For ease in tracking, the classes are arranged below in groups of 10.
