WW I & WWII Classroom Close Study of Collection
Each semester, the Kentucky Museum (KM) and the Department of Library Special Collections (DLSC) fill a classroom with WWI/WWII artifacts and invite WKU history classes to schedule Classroom Close Study of Collections (CCC) sessions.
Jonathan Jeffrey, Department Head of DLSC, and Sandy Staebell, KM Collections Curator, discuss the provenance and significance of various pieces. Students and professors have the opportunity to look at all items, take photos, and ask presenters questions.
