Washington University Opens Stories from WWII Exhibit

Anchored by the Walter Goldschmidt letters, Olin Library at Washington University in St. Louis has opened a new exhibit in the Newman Tower library gallery. Born in Germany in 1922, Goldschmidt came to the United States in 1936 and was drafted into the U.S. Army in 1943. He returned to Europe as a translator in this capacity, including Germany and other countries. Numismatics is not far behind, and this exhibit also includes concentration and internment camp money from Steve and Ray Feller, in addition to war bonds from the collection of Joe Boling. Visitors may also view the Newman copy of the Declaration of Independence, a rare, early broadside example from Rhode Island, which is on permanent display at the library.
