History Pop-Up at the Russell Special Collections Library

Dr. Steve Soper’s HIST 3775 students will end the term with a pop-up exhibit at the Russell special collections building, on the subject of "Crime and Punishment in Georgia: 20th-Century Prisons and Convict Life." Among the items that will be on display are photographs of convict laborers beginning construction of Sanford Stadium in the 1920s and a crocheted replica of a prison cell made by an inmate on death row in the 1990s.
