The 1960s is regarded as one of the most turbulent times in recent history. SC&A has a new exhibit that highlights elements of the dramatic changes that took place during this decade using materials from the collections. The exhibit is divided into three parts: Popular Literature, American Life, and Politics and the Cold War. There is a physical exhibit located outside the department in Fenwick Library in addition to the online version we created using Omeka software. The primary collections featured in the exhibit include: The Francis McNamara Papers, the Rare Book Collection, American Public Transportation Association (APTA) Records, the James McDonnell Transportation Collection, and the Oliver Atkins Photograph Collection.

The online exhibit can be found here:
