WVHP Photographs in Action

On January 24, 2013, the WVHP curator was contacted by The New Yorker. They asked to use some of the images of "our" veterans in an online slide show that illustrated a story discussing the Pentagon's decision to end the ban on women in combat. 9 of the 11 images are of WVHP vets. These women's service eras ranged from WWII to the Iraq War.

You can see the slide show here:

This year's UNCG Libraries' travel grant recipient, Andi Gustavson, spent a week looking at ALMOST ALL of the WVHP collections for research for her dissertation.
