Last summer, Special Collections was awarded a $25,000 grant from the Texas State Library and Archives Commission to continue digitizing film negatives documenting the transformation of Fort Worth during World War II. The images show young men in military recruiting stations, women selling war bonds, and more. "These images are a valuable aid to understanding how Texans responded to World War II," says Rebecca Bichel, dean of libraries. "We appreciate the Texas State Library and Archives Commission's support in helping us provide access to this unique collection."
