August 11 – December 30, 2014
A documentary exhibit about World War I, especially on the Western Front, commemorates the centennial of its outbreak. Guest exhibit co-curators Skye Doney and Eric O’Connor draw upon strong holdings of books, printed ephemera, letters, postcards, and other unpublished materials in campus libraries and archives to illustrate the months leading up to the beginning of war in Europe in 1914; prosecution of the war itself; life on the home front; creative works inspired by the war; and the eventual entry of the United States into the “war to end all wars.”
