Poster for IU Archives exhibit featuring photograph and documents from exhibit

The year 1968 was a monumental one on Indiana University’s Bloomington campus. Amid the ramping up of the university’s Sesquicentennial celebration planning, a campus construction boom, and impressive achievements in the football and swimming programs, IU students, faculty, and administrators joined in the debates sweeping American college campuses over issues that continue to be of relevance fifty years later, including racial and gender equality, diversity in higher education, national political campaigns, and the role of the U.S. military. Using photographs, posters, correspondence, and other documents and artifacts of the era, This exhibit tells the stories of the individuals and groups who made their voices heard via the channels of the IU administration and student government, symposiums, speeches, publications, protests, and other demonstrations.

Curators: Mary Mellon.
