The Atomic Age Opens Collection

The collection consists primarily of two scrapbooks containing mail art postcards solicited by the Popular Culture Library in the spring and summer of 1995 for an exhibition that was part of the conference "The Atomic Age Opens: American Culture Confronts the Bomb." The conference was held at BGSU in July 1995 to mark the 50th anniversary of the first detonation of the atomic bomb.
