In honor of the more than 2,400 U.S. personnel who died due to the attack on December 7, 1941, the Bradbury Science Museum will present on exhibit on Pearl Harbor. A similar display was last up for the 70th anniversary of the attack five years ago. This new version features maps, a “sweetheart” pin (an inexpensive, commemorative pin sent to the gals back home), and National Archives photos, among other items.
In addition to a detailed chronology of events beginning at 6:18 a.m. on that historic morning, the display includes snippets of a serviceman’s diary, samples of newspaper pages of the time, and an extensive slideshow of more than 60 images taken before, during, and after the attack. A feedback book that is part of the exhibit includes some Lab employees’ recollections of the events.
The exhibit will be located in the Museum’s Tech Lab beginning December 5 and will be on display through the end of February.
The National WWII Museum supplied a large number of the materials on display.
