World War II: A World at War, A State Transformed
June 26 – December 7, 2015


Join us as we honor the Greatest Generation through an original exhibition, opening 70 years following the end of World War II. In World War II: A World at War, A State Transformed, artifacts and manuscripts from the premier Mark Family Collection illustrate this massive conflict, from the battlefields in North Africa to the home fronts in America. Letters, historic documents, and military uniforms provide a sense of place and give visitors a lens into the many events of World War II, including prominent battles and critical political decisions.

How Do I Look?
Nineteenth-century Daguerreotypes, Ambrotypes, Tintypes, Cartes-de-Visite, Cabinet Cards, and Stereoviews
On display in the Davies Family Research Library
March 18 - May 2, 2015


Artist and photographer Myrna Goldware has created an exhibit showcasing the diversity of formats in mid-nineteenth century photography. Drawing on her own collection of highly unusual images, she presents examples of the veritable kaleidoscope of formats that emerged during the Victorian era. These were chiefly the daguerreotype, the ambrotype, the tintype, the carte-de-visite, the cabinet card, and the stereoview.
