film still from The March, a large crowd of people
The digital exhibition The March is the result of a collaborative project led by David A. Frank (Professor of Rhetoric and Mellon Faculty Fellow), the University of Oregon Libraries, and the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, with individual contributions by members of both institutions (see below). This exhibition received inspiration and support from The James Blue Project, a research interest group at the University of Oregon devoted to creating a “living archive” from materials relating to the James Blue papers in UO Libraries’ Special Collections and University Archives.
Peg Lynch
A digital exhibit celebrating the life and legacy of a media pioneer. Peg Lynch was the first woman to create, write, star in, and solely own a sitcom series. Her show Ethel and Albert enjoyed a long and enormously successful run on radio and, beginning in 1944, television. Lynch developed her own brand of gentle, domestic comedy that won the hearts of viewers across the country and was applauded by critics as well.
