Junior Class Hullabaloo Board

Junior Class Hullabaloo Yearbook Board, 1918

On the Homewood campus, where the university had just relocated from its original downtown site, the war touched every aspect of university life. This exhibit explores the war’s effects on the Hopkins community through three themes: RepresentationsExperiences, and Aftermath.

Representations showcases different forms of art and propaganda emerging from the war that shaped American perspectives. Experiences highlights the diverse ways in which the Hopkins community experienced the war: on campus, in the military, through research, and in war relief. Aftermath addresses postwar reconstruction by examining the work of a future Hopkins president in the 1919 American Commission to Negotiate Peace at the Paris Peace Conference. It also looks at what changed on the Homewood campus in the immediate postwar period.
