Race riots. Labor strikes. Women's battle for the vote. The aftermath of the Great War. The transformative events and harsh realities of the year 1919 still reverberate a century later.
Nineteen Nineteen, published to accompany a centennial exhibition of the Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens in San Marino, California, explores the institution and its founding through the lens of this single, tumultuous year. The fully illustrated catalog features works from The Huntington's vast collections of books, manuscripts, photographs, ephemera, and art, many of them never exhibited or published before.
