Open Archive: World War II on the Princeton Homefront
Princeton Public Library, Historical Society of Princeton Princeton Public Library Discovery Center
October 17, 2019 · 6:30 pm—8:00 pm · Princeton Public Library
Stop by the Discovery Center to explore artifacts and archival materials that illustrate how Princeton residents participated in World War II from the homefront through civil defense, rationing and foreign relief efforts. This Open Archive is presented in conjunction with the library and Historical Society of Princeton’s World War II exhibition on view through February 6, 2020 in the Princeton Room.
The Historical Society of Princeton’s Open Archive series allows visitors to interact with little-seen artifacts and documents from its vast collection. Featuring a different theme each time, these events present historical material with minimal interpretation and encourage visitors to make observations, ask questions, and be the historian themselves. HSP’s curator of collections and research will be on hand to share information and answer questions.
