This exhibit was curated by students enrolled in Professor Jill Ogline Titus’s Spring 2016 Introduction to Public History (HIST 301) class at Gettysburg College. The student curators were charged with the responsibility of developing a digital exhibit that would provide historical and interpretive context for a collection housed in Gettysburg College’s Musselman Library and assisting library staff in their efforts to share the rich materials located in Special Collections & College Archives with a broader public audience. The exhibit features pamphlets, buttons, newspaper clippings, and other materials from the library’s MS-036 Radical Pamphlets, 1965-1975 collection. The exhibit was built in WordPress and utilizes Omeka; it represents an ongoing partnership between Musselman Library, the Civil War Institute, and the Gettysburg College Educational Technology Office.
