Description

The exhibition "Red Press: Radical Print Culture from St. Petersburg to Chicago" represents the Bolshevik revolution as it was waged through broadsides, pamphlets, periodicals and posters. Many materials are drawn from the archive of Samuel N. Harper, son of the University’s founding president, the first American Russianist, and eyewitness to the revolution. Through these rare printed sources visitors can trace the worldwide spread of revolutionary and antirevolutionary media and ideas.

Hours: Mondays through Fridays, 9 a.m. – 4:45 p.m., and, when University of Chicago classes are in session, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, 9 a.m. – 5:45 p.m.
