Bird Library, 6th Floor
Syracuse University, Syracuse

Curated by University Archivist Meg Mason, the exhibition explores the dramatic impact of the GI Bill and the subsequent influx of veterans on the Syracuse University campus following World War II (1945-1950). From the University Archives, the materials on view document this critical period in the University's history and the associated changes to the campus landscape, social and cultural life, and academic programs.

Materials on view include:
• photographs of temporary classrooms and housing for veterans, including old barracks and trailers, which filled the campus and surrounding areas;
• cartoons of veteran student life on campus;
• aerial shots of the main and south campuses showing changes in the landscape;
• personal items from veterans who attended Syracuse University, including a cheerleading megaphone, a postcard about arriving at Syracuse, and photographs of the inside of one of the trailers used as married student housing;
• Daily Orange articles about the impact of veterans on campus.
