This autumn the Library & Archives extends warm wishes to our many supporters, and also to faculty and students returning to campus for the academic year. We invite all the members of our community to visit our new exhibition, Hoover@100: Ideas Defining A Century, which is now open in the Hoover Tower rotunda. The exhibition tells the rich history of the Hoover Institution's founding, the development of its world-renowned archives, the achievements of its fellows, and its continued dedication to democratic ideals and the creation of peace.
As we complete the large-scale renovation project that will allow for the construction of the new George P. Shultz Building in 2020, the Library & Archives continues to acquire significant collection material, including documentation of the 1986 Chernobyl disaster and the papers of Tang Zhenchang, one of China's most influential writers. We thank our supporters for allowing us to continue our hundred-year-long tradition of bringing the world's most important historical artifacts to Hoover, ensuring rigorous scholarship on issues of war, revolution, and peace for generations to come.
