The Wright State University Friends of the Libraries will present Infamy—December 7, 1941, an exhibit of photographs depicting the 1941 bombing of Pearl Harbor by Japan, which led to America’s entrance into World War II. The exhibit will be on display Dec. 1–14.

“We are honored to bring this 70th anniversary exhibit to Dayton and to commemorate the amazing experiences and deeds of the veterans and citizens who helped pull this country through WWII,” said Ellen Reinsch Friese, president of the Friends of the Libraries’ Board.

The exhibit was created by The National WWII Museum in New Orleans.

The exhibit will be located in the second floor atrium of Wright State’s Paul Laurence Dunbar Library. Associated exhibits featuring memories and artifacts from Miami Valley veterans, including eyewitness Frank Ruby of Dayton and the Libraries’ Special Collections & Archives will be displayed on the first floor.

The exhibit will be open during the Library’s regular hours: Sunday 1–9 p.m.; Monday–Thursday 8 a.m.–8 p.m.; Saturday 10 a.m.–6 p.m.

Parking is free and available near the building. Weekday visitors arriving during the daytime are asked to obtain a visitor parking pass from the parking booth located outside of the Student Union.
