Calling all history buffs | Arts & Culture
The Evansville Vanderburgh Public Library has unveiled a new online image gallery, Evansville in WWII Digital Collection.
Photos of the Evansville shipyard construction and work crews, boat christenings, broom raisings, and more pictures of local interest are featured, as well as company newsletters from the time and war bond posters.
In 2012, the EVPL collaborated with the Evansville Museum of Arts, History & Science and the University of Southern Indiana to bring the public thousands of images.
The EVPL received a grant for nearly $17,000 from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, administered by the Indiana State Library, to make this project possible.
The collection is viewable by visiting evpl.org/WWII.
