The Richard B. Russell Library for Political Research and Studies is a center for documenting and promoting the study of Georgia's modern political history, policy, and culture.
Now and Then: 1979 is part of a periodic exhibit series hosted by the library that explores pivotal years in American history. From June 4 to December 24, 2019, guests can revisit a year that witnessed the Three Mile Island nuclear disaster, the Iran hostage crisis, gas shortages, and the Egypt-Israeli Peace Treaty. The Russell Gallery is located inside the Richard B. Russell Building Special Collections Libraries at the University of Georgia.
