New Website for Women Veterans Historical Project

The Betty H. Carter Women Veterans Historical Project (WVHP), established at UNCG in 1998, documents the contributions of women in the military and related service organizations since World War I. The collection offers a wide range of source material, including photographs, letters, diaries, scrapbooks, oral histories, military patches and insignia, uniforms, and posters, as well as published works. Through active acquisition and educational outreach the project continues to expand its research collection and to explore the cultural, social, and military changes in American society that were fueled by the gender integration of the armed forces.

UNCG's University Archives and Digital Projects teams are proud to announce a new website for the WVHP. The new site features a database searchable by branch and conflict and hundreds of images scanned from the collections.

Our annual women veteran's luncheon will be this Saturday, November 15. Check back soon for pictures!
