Class of 68

2018 May/June

1968 was a year of major transition for the U.S. The nation, mired in the midst of the Vietnam war, was in a state of unrest.

Major protests marked that year’s Democratic National Convention, and the American Civil Rights movement blossomed into a force that could not be ignored.

 

The Story of the Story Behind the Story

2018 March/April

In 2013, we told you the story of another story in another magazine. That magazine was Yank, the Army weekly distributed to service men and women around the world during World War II. Yank spread the news of U.S. forces’ efforts from all points around the globe. It featured cartoons, humor, and profiles of cities and people back home. It kept soldiers connected to the broader world and also reminded them of what awaited them at the end of the war.

Elizabeth Russell dips a paintbrush into a small dab of white. She gently moves it over to a sheet of paper that she textured with contrasting pink and gray watercolors. After the tip of the brush lightly touches the surface, she drags the bristles in a curve, the white paint leaving the brush behind in a streak on the page, instantly creating the forward part of a dragon’s wing.

A New View

2018 January/February

In a recent social media post, Kelsie Gray declared, “I have finally achieved the enviable state of being where ‘getting ready to go out’ entails digging the who-knows-what out from under my fingernails and swapping out my gross bandaids for clean ones.
