‘A Question of History’ now on display

Posted on May 1st, 2017

“A Question of History: Public History in Illinois” will be on display in the Marvin Foyer of Booth Library until July 31. The exhibit was created by EIU’s 2016-2017 Historical Administration class.

On Oct. 1, 2015, the Illinois State Museum closed its doors for nine months amidst a statewide budget crisis. This closure brought the topic of public history in Illinois to the forefront of a national conversation about the relevance of history.

Featuring items from institutions across the state, including the Illinois State Museum, the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, and the Lincoln Home National Historic Site, this exhibit traces the role of public and historical institutions of Illinois to show how history was and continues to be vital to our cultural heritage and identity.

For more information on the exhibit and programs, click here.

The opening reception was held March 30 and included a keynote address by Dr. Samuel Wheeler, Illinois state historian. Several other program were held during April in conjunction with the exhibit.
