Biographical Sketch/Agency History

History: The United States Bicentennial marked the 200th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. In 1966 “Congress established the American Revolutionary Bicentennial Commission (ARBC). Boosters envisioned the celebration as a showcase of American achievements and called for a world’s fair” (encyclopedia.com).

During the 1960s universities and colleges all over the United States participated in protests against American involvement in the Vietnam War. Wartburg College and Wartburg students participated in commemorating those who served.
