The WWI draft registration applied to men born from 1873 to 1900.
"The first registration for WWI was for men aged 21 to 31 on 5 June 1917.
The second (5 June 1918) was for men who turned 21 after 5 June 1917.
The third and final registration was for all men aged 18 to 21 and 31 to 45 on 18 September 1918."
Info from John Scroggins

An excellent book on how to track veterans down is Richard S. Johnson's
"How To Locate Anyone Who Is Or Has Been In The Military." It is updated regularly.
Amazon and most big bookstores have it. Information from John Scroggins
