After the United States entered World War II in 1941, librarian Nancy Thompson began reaching out to students and alumni in the armed services. Many wrote back. The letters and other materials were compiled in a scrapbook that we call the Nancy Thompson WWII Scrapbook Collection.
Displayed in the exhibit cases are photographs, letters, pictures and other memorabilia from the Scrapbook Collection and the University Archives, touching on the lives of soldiers and students during this pivotal time in history.
