New Collaborative Digital History Exhibit to Commemorate WWI Anniversary

Contributed by Hillary Kativa

This fall, the Historical Society of Pennsylvania and Villanova University began work on a collaborative digital history exhibit to mark the Centennial Anniversary of the First World War.  Organized around themes like propaganda, medicine, popular culture, and the Philadelphia home front, the exhibit will feature digital images of manuscripts, photographs, posters, and newspapers from each institution’s collections, as well as interpretative content by scholars and students.  The exhibition is scheduled to launch in 2014 to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the start of the war and will continue to add content over the next four years.  If you are interested in joining the project or contributing content, please contact Hillary S. Kativa ( or Michael Foight (
