“The Humanity in History”
January 8th-March 1st, 2016
Kelly Grogg, graduate student in the School of Library and Information Science and Special Collections senior Olson Graduate Assistant, has completed her capstone exhibition. It is on display now in the cases outside Special Collections on the 3rd floor.
“Every person featured in this exhibit has contributed to make the world a better place. They may not have ever reached the level of recognition they deserved, but despite their humble beginnings and oncoming obstacles, they contributed to the world in a way that cannot be measured in a ‘neatly packaged, sanitized parable’. These are the people who create history.” – Kelly Grogg
