Lecture: "Over There" With the American Expeditionary Forces in the Great War 

Studying hundreds of letters written by soldiers, postcards, photographs, and other materials, Louis Miller discovered some shared themes from these firsthand accounts and explores them in a current exhibit at the Clements Library. Miller's lecture will discuss some of the extraordinary and heartbreaking stories found in the Clements' archives and present an overview of the exhibit.

Please note, this lecture will be held at the Hatcher Library Gallery. An after-hours viewing of the exhibit at the Clements Library will follow the lecture. Visitors have the opportunity to view both paper and three-dimensional objects relating to the First World War, including a doughboy helmet, censored letters, photographs, and souvenirs. A pamphlet of excerpts from the writings of Americans who served complements the exhibit.
