Join us for an archivist-led tour of the compelling exhibit, “A Campus Divided: Progressives, Anti-Communists, Racism and Anti-Semitism at the University of Minnesota, 1930-1942.” With archival materials, the exhibit illustrates how U of M presidents, deans and other administrators routinely subjected students and faculty to surveillance and attacked progressive student activism in order to create a campus in the narrow and distorted image of an “America First” nation. If you'd like to carpool, meet in the Stone Arch parking lot at 1:30 p.m. Otherwise, meet on the third floor of Andersen Library, where the exhibit starts. The exhibit closes on December 20.
