Hoover Institution Library and Archives at Stanford University

for “A Century of Change: China 1911-2011”


“Commemorating the one-hundredth anniversary of the Chinese Revolution of 1911, the highly original content of this catalog, with its diverse and engaging variety of images, artifacts and bilingual text, documents a century of tumult and change which results in the establishment of the Republic of China,” said Cherry Williams, chair of the RBMS Exhibition Awards committee and curator of manuscripts at Indiana University. “The use of ivory and red color in the page layouts is a particularly effective organizing tool providing subtle definitions which flow from one section to the next. Highlighting a resource which may be unfamiliar to some, the catalog appeals to a broad constituency of visitors by providing an enticing glimpse into the rich holdings of the Hoover Institute.”
