SULLIVAN MUSEUM EXHIBIT EXTENDED THROUGH JUNE 23, 2017

World War: America and the Creation of a Superpower examines the way World Wars have defined our nation’s place on the global stage. Featured objects include propaganda posters from the Sullivan Museum’s own collection, as well as posters on loan from the Robert Hull Fleming Museum in Burlington, Vt., and Chicago’s Pritzker Military Museum. Also on exhibit is a rare, complete “Hello Girls” uniform, on loan from Norwich alumnus James Mullin ’65. Hello Girls were bilingual switchboard operators who served in the Army Signal Corps during World War I. Other objects on display include trench art, uniforms, medals, and objects from the field.
