In October C-SPAN crews spent a week filming at various locations around Madison, including the World War I exhibit in the Libraries’ Special Collections Department. Special Collections librarian Robin Rider and Skye Doney, a graduate student who curated the exhibit, were interviewed as part of the special. Fellow grad student Eric O’Connor also helped curate the exhibit. The majority of the exhibit contains pieces donated by UW–Madison alumnus Andrew Stangel.
