1940-1949: War and Peace on the University of Nebraska Campus

The decade of the 1940s was one that was clearly divided into two parts: wartime and peacetime. The outbreak of World War II had a profound effect on the entire country, including the University of Nebraska- Lincoln. When the dust settled, a new culture developed on campus. This project traces the history of UNL during the1940s.
