Idaho in the Great War

Students in a HIST 2291: The Historian’s Craft contributed to a semester-long collaborative research project on Idaho in the First World War. This project addressed Idaho’s role in the war, local perceptions of the global conflict, and Pocatellans’ everyday experiences during this transformative event. Students engaged with a variety of primary and secondary sources, taking advantage of the Oboler Library special collections as well as a variety of digitized documents.
