“First Class” is an exploration of Mason’s history and a celebration of Mason’s students over the decades. In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the class of 1968, four cases in the gallery are dedicated to the 1960s, with the remaining four cases dedicated to the 70s, 80s, 90s, and 2000s. On display are photographs, articles, and various memorabilia reflecting the growth and history of George Mason University.
“First Class” is curated by Bob Vay, Digital Collections and Exhibitions Archivist at the Special Collections Research Center. Bob has a BA in American Studies and an MA in History, both from Mason.
