Exhibit Information

In commemoration of its 75th anniversary, the Harriman Institute is mounting an exhibit of photographs, newspaper and journal clippings, pages from books, and artifacts to celebrate the Institute’s fifteen directors. The exhibit explores the dynamics of the Cold War, the post-World War II expansion of Russian studies in the United States, the rapid changes in the distribution of global power, and the evolution of the U.S. relationship with Russia and the other former Soviet states.
