To mark the centennial of America's entry into the First World War, the Oakland History Room has mounted an exhibit about Oakland before and during the international conflict. Many of the issues raised during this war--nativism, acculturation of immigrants, national security--continue to challenge us today. The exhibit will feature photographs, books, scrapbooks, posters, and ephemera showing how Oaklanders responded to the call of duty.
