Expect Challenge. Achieve Distinction.

August 31, 2016 – June 30, 2017

The exhibit, which is aligned with the 100th anniversary of the U.S.’s entry into WWI in 1917 and the 75th anniversary of U.S. involvement in WWII in 1941, and the exhibit examined the way these wars have defined the country’s place in the world.

Featured objects include propaganda posters from the Sullivan Museum’s own collection, on loan from the Robert Hull Fleming Museum in Burlington, and the Pritzker Military Museum in Chicago. These posters offer a fascinating look into how war objectives were communicated to the country. Also on exhibit will be a rare complete “Hello Girls” uniform, on generous loan from Norwich alumnus James Mullin. Hello Girls were bilingual switchboard operators who served in the U.S. Army Signal Corps during World War I.

Other objects on display include trench art, uniforms, medals and objects from the field. The exhibit also includes a listening station that will take visitors back in time to experience the home front via radio broadcasts during World War II.
