America’s Greatest Generation
This national touring exhibit explores the life arc of America's Greatest Generation -- their lives from birth to old age, told in their own words. Born in the 1910s and '20s, this generation was shaped by their experiences during the Great Depression and World War II, creating both the Baby Boom and the postwar economic surge. Features include personal anecdotes and photomural text panels, a variety of household objects and toys, military and homefront items from World War II, clothing, books, baby boom artifacts, and travel and tourism items. The exhibit boats five audio-visual components.
This exhibition has been made possible through NEH on the Road, a special initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities. It is brought to you by Mid-America Arts Alliance. Our Lives, Our Stories: America’s Greatest Generation was organized by the Minnesota History Center/Minnesota Historical Society, St. Paul, MN.
