Bridgewater College recently announced the "Seek Peace and Pursue It" exhibition at the Alexander Mack Memorial Library.

The exhibit will open on Oct. 22 and run through Dec. 9. Admission is free.

The peacemakers featured in the exhibition are Paul Bowman, John Kline, Lula Miller, Anna Mow, Alexander Mack Sr., W. Harold Row, Nettie Senger, Naomi Miller West and Nobel Peace Prize nominee M. Robert Zigler.

The papers of these proponents for peace are in the Bridgewater College Special Collection and the Reuel B. Pritchett Museum Collection.

“'The Seek Peace and Pursue It' exhibition will also explore how peace is being found today,” Gardner said. “A number of humanitarian agencies sent materials for the exhibition, and we have had excellent collaboration with Bridgewater College faculty and students, who told us what ‘Seek Peace’ means to them. In addition to honoring nine inspiring historic peacemakers, we will explore how their legacy is being carried out in the present day.”

Artifacts and documents from the lives and work of John Kline, Lula Miller, W. Harold Row and Nettie Senger will be on display. The exhibition will also include writings by Bridgewater College students, as well as faculty member Dr. Stephen Longenecker and Provost and Professor of Physics Emeritus Dr. Dale Ulrich.
