On Friday, February 20, from 2-3 p.m., Special Collections and Archives is hosting a reception for Artifacts from the Cold War: A Collaborative Exhibition between The Cold War Museum and Special Collections & Archives. The reception will be held in the Conference Room, 2nd Floor, Wing A, Fenwick Library.
After dropping two atomic bombs on Japan at the conclusion of World War II, fear of annihilation from the bomb heightened tensions world-wide. A struggle for influence, military superiority, and territory existed between the Western Bloc (the United States and its allies) and the Eastern Bloc (the Soviet Union and its allies), known as the “Cold War”. This played out in the building of the Berlin Wall, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Korean and Vietnam Wars, and other deadly crises. The Cold War came to an end with the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991. The era passed without mutual nuclear devastation or a third World War.
The Cold War Museum and the University Libraries’ Special Collections & Archives collaborated on this exhibition to feature artifacts and research materials relating to the Cold War. The Cold War Museum is located in Vint Hill, near Warrenton, VA.
