Community Collaboration with the University of Iowa
An undergraduate class from the University of Iowa History Department is collaborating with Brucemore to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Douglas Starch Works explosion.
Students in HIST 2151: Introduction to the History Major are studying Iowa’s urban and industrial past, examining class, race and diversity through the lens of the Douglas Starch Works explosion. Students will present their findings in a free, public presentation on Saturday, May 4. Learn more about the student presentation here.
Updates on their projects will be added over the course of the spring.
