A new exhibit about the role of the Stanford University School of Medicine in WWI is now on view in Lane Library, marking the 100th anniversary of the US entry into the war. The exhibit examines the split that occurred within the university and the country over the proper role of the US when war broke out in 1914, as well as the varied ways that the School of Medicine faculty, students, and facilities eventually became involved. The exhibit features historical photographs and documents from the Stanford Medical History Center, located in Lane Library.

There is a new exhibit in the South Lobby/East Wing of Green Library, highlighting Stanford Special Collections’ trove of Russian satirical journals from the beginning of the 20th century:  “The Russian Revolution of 1905: Political Change Reflected in Satire & Caricature.”

Russia had a revolution in 1917. In fact, it had two revolutions in 1917 – the first one in February, and then the one in October.  But it also almost had one in 1905.
