In celebration of Black History month, we have created an online display, “Delta Sigma Theta & The March for Women’s Suffrage.” To view, please click the link below or visit de.gov/dstexhibit.
This exhibit originally opened to the public last year with Governor John Carney in attendance, but due to COVID-19 restrictions, the majority of the public has not been able to visit the exhibit. To remedy that, we have turned the physical exhibit into an online display for the enjoyment of all Delawareans.
The Delaware National Guard and the Delaware Public Archives are proud to present the American Illustration Collection: The Centennial Exhibition.
This exhibition features eighteen original oil paintings from 1918-1919 by famed illustrators Frank E. Schoonover, Gayle Porter Hoskins and Albin Henning in a gallery setting. These artists are among the most popular and prolific illustrators of the early 20th century.
The paintings were commissioned by the “Ladies Home Journal” to illustrate key events and scenes of World War I, and were printed in their popular feature “Souvenir Pictures of the Great War.”
The Great War & The First State is an exhibit created by the Delaware Public Archives to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of America’s involvement in World War I.
The exhibit explores Delaware’s important role in World War I. Although small, the First State answered the call with a BIG effort both overseas and here at home.
Exhibit highlights include World War I military records, soldier and civilian-made Trench Art, and the elegant 22-piece Silver Service presented to the USS Delaware battleship in October 1910.
