This past week, we featured a series of blog posts dedicated to our current exhibition up in the Pearce Foyer of Gorgas Library. The exhibition, “Glimpses of the Great War, Abroad and At Home,” was curated by Martha Bace and Patrick Adcock and will be on view until mid-September. Read the first post and second posts of this series.
Materials from the following manuscript collections in the W. S. Hoole Library within the Division of Special Collections were used for the exhibition.
