Since its founding one hundred years ago, Hoover Library & Archives has been dedicated to the idea that engaging a wide public with the world's most important historical materials related to war, revolution, and peace is just as important as collecting and preserving those materials. The past summer has been a shining example of that mission. We have hosted well over a hundred students, faculty members, fellows, and high school teachers for classes and educational presentations; published an exciting new volume of never before seen WWII art; seen our collections used for an award-winning film; and assisted researchers as they use our collections for books and articles.
In the fall we look forward to even further engagement with the public as we open a new exhibition in the freshly renovated Hoover Tower galleries and host speakers who have produced significant books based on our collections. We thank the many supporters and donors who make our robust outreach efforts possible.
