From the Prairie to the Trenches: Iowans in the Great War

Utilizing rare images, documents and objects this exhibition examines World War I from multiple angles; the representation of the war in contemporary culture, from the perspective of the women who volunteered and supported the military effort, as well as the viewpoint of Iowa’s minority populations.
