Hilary Lewis Walczak, a recent graduate of the History Department’s MA in Public History program, is currently working as an archivist at Grove City College. While conducting an inventory in the rare book room of the Henry Buhl Library, she discovered a locked drawer that had not been opened in about 60 years, and in it were 175 World War II era posters.

The posters are now part of a display in the Grove City College’s Pew Fine Arts Center.
