About the Virtual Exhibit
This Web site seeks to replicate the experience of viewing the "Radical Woman in a Classic Town" exhibit by reproducing images of all the photographs, documents, and artifacts used in the exhibit, matched with all the descriptive captions.
The Index above lists the "Chapters" in the virtual exhibit. Each "Chapter" represents one of the themed display cases in the original exhibit, and is made up of a separate document in PDF format for ease of access. A photo at the beginning of each chapter shows the placement of items in the display cases. Images were scanned at a moderate resolution to keep the file sizes small. The Credits information at the end of each PDF document provides additional details about each pictured item, and identifies the source of the item.
