Kent State Shootings: Digital Archive

The shootings at Kent State University on May 4, 1970 were a key domestic event of the Vietnam War. People were outraged by the shootings and the tragedy dominated the media for days afterwards. This digital collection from Kent State University contains many items from their physical holdings that document those events, including photographs, oral histories, and so on. Visitors to the site can read an FAQ section, look over bibliographies, learn more about their in-house oral history project, and learn about using the physical collection in person. A good way to get into the collection is by using the Browse Subjects area. Here, visitors can examine over two dozen headings, such as ambulances, gas masks, and signs. For cultural historians and others interested in recent American history, this site will be a moving and welcome resource. [KMG]
