Cayuga Museum seeks 1918 items for next exhibit

The Cayuga Museum is seeking items from the community for a new exhibit in 2018: "1918: A Century Later."

The exhibit will tell the story of World War I, the influenza epidemic, the women's suffrage movement, the migration of black people from the Jim Crow South, the fight against child labor, the rise of the automobile and more. Locally, it'll recount the growth of factories, the arrival of immigrants in large numbers, and new Auburn neighborhoods.

The museum seeks photographs, WWI military items, industrial artifacts, clothing, family memorabilia and more.

The exhibit will open in April and remain on display through the end of the year. All loaned items will be secured, covered by the museum's insurance and returned at the end of the exhibit.
