CONWAY, Ark. (October 30,
2017) – “The Great War: Arkansas in World War I,” a traveling exhibit of the
Arkansas State Archives, will be on display in Hendrix College’s Bailey
Library, at the corner of Washington Avenue and Winfield Street, throughout the
month of November.
“The Great War” features
World War I-era documents, photographs, posters, maps, and other historical
objects that provide context for Arkansas’ role in World War I, both within the
borders of the state and on the front lines. The display outlines the war’s
timeline while also sharing information on the training of troops in Arkansas,
heroes from Arkansas, information on life overseas and at home, and logistical
concerns such as provisions and healthcare during wartime.
As a companion piece with a
more localized focus, Bailey Library will display its own concurrent exhibit, “The
Great War: Life at Hendrix,” a collection of materials from the Hendrix College
Bailey Library is open from
8 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, noon to 5
p.m. Saturday, and 2 to 11 p.m. Sunday.
