Project Description

This project focuses on the history of Ursinus College during the 1920s and the early 1930s; aimed at showing how the student body reacted and responded to the sudden shift from the exuberance and wealth that defined the Roaring Twenties to the extreme poverty and immense misery that came to define the Great Depression.
