Description

Private Oscar C. Tugo enlisted on May 7, 1917; he was killed as a night orderly during the air raid on Base Hospital No. 5 on September 4, along with Lieutenant William Fitzsimons, Privates Rudolph Rubino, Jr., and Leslie G. Woods. On October 18, 1921, a public space adjoining the Harvard Medical School quadrangle was named in Tugo's honor. At the dedication exercises, Andrew J. Peters, the Mayor of Boston, said, "This Circle will be an ever-present reminder of the spirit, not only of the man whose name it bears and whose sacrifice it commemorates, but of the high idealism of the men and women of the Harvard Medical Unit who hastened so unselfishly to do their patriotic duty at the first call of war."
