New Exhibit: Spies & Superheroes

On the evening of July 8, Special Collections & Archives staff participated in the Air Force Museum Foundation‘s second “After Dark” event, themed “Spies and Superheroes,” at the National Museum of the United States Air Force.

We brought an exhibit about spies and superheroes (ok mostly spies/espionage/reconnaissance), as well as a few original items from our collections, including airplane spotter publications and Civil War-era field glasses (binoculars), and spoke with many of the 300+ attendees at the event.

Even Darth Vader was interested in learning about Special Collections & Archives!

If we missed you at the event, you can still check out our exhibit on the fourth floor of the Dunbar Library, just outside our entrance, from now until the beginning of October.

“Spies & Superheroes” exhibit now on display on the Dunbar Library 4th floor.

The next “After Dark” event will be the “Steampunk Soiree” on October 14. Watch the AF Museum’s “After Dark” Events page for more information & tickets.
