Upcoming Events At This Venue
March 16, 2017
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill took on the role of educating the people of North Carolina about World War I. The Bureau of Extension, formed in 1913, published informational pamphlets and sent faculty lecturers across the state. These activities reflected the public service ethos promoted by UNC-Chapel Hill’s new president, Edward Kidder Graham, and became policy for the University in the years to come.
This exhibition uses photographs, documents and other artifacts to recall how the Carolina campus supported Graham’s vision and did its bit for the Great War.
