Students Visit World War II Exhibit and Collections

Friday, March 10, 2006

In late February, The History Center hosted seven classes of 5th graders from Diboll's Temple Elementary for tours of the World War II exhibit and an introduction to related manuscript collections.  Visiting one class at a time, these students eagerly viewed World War II era newspapers, wartime aviator's journals, photographs, and various other items and small artifacts, allowing them to connect the subjects they studied in class with the real people involved in these historic events.  (Click the images at right to enlarge).
