WWI collections in the Clarke
I've written about the collections in the Clarke for MAA's newsletter Open Entry. Although we declared war on April 2, the war for the US occurred after April 2, and came to involve men and women from across the US, at home, on the front lines, in hospitals, in multiple countries. It change social mores, families, relationships, boundary lines, concepts of war, and so much more.
Here's the article I wrote for MAA about our WWI collections with some photographs.
