Two Exhibits Commemorate Centennial of WWI's Conclusion

Posted by Nathan Masters

Two exhibits in USC's Doheny Memorial Library commemorate the end of World War I, one hundred years ago this week on November 11, 1918.

In the first-floor foyer, A Salute to Veterans on the Centennial of the End of World War I features rare artifacts from the USC Libraries' Special Collections—including the diary of a German-American nurse who returned to Germany for the war—as well as materials from the USC University Archives that document the university's preparation for and involvement in the war.

On the second floor in the Special Collections exhibit case is Armistice: Writings from the End of the Great War. Curated by Susan Hikida, the exhibit also highlights items from the libraries' Special Collections, with an emphasis on soldiers' letters home. 

Both exhibits will remain on display through the end of the fall 2018 semester.
