Exhibit: The Cold War


The Cold War

The Cold War is a multimedia exhibit featuring items from both the personal collection of UC Merced Founding Faculty member Gregg Herken and Castle Air Museum. Of special note are a gunner and ejection seat from a B-52 Bomber, along with what were once classified as top secret documents from the CIA. Highlighting the past military rivalry between the United States and Russia, the exhibit contrasts Cold War era uniform articles and emblems from the Strategic Air Command with those of the Soviet Military. Digital media includes a six minute film that documents key chronological events of this almost 50 year period.
