Center for History, Carroll Gallery, 808 W Washington St., South Bend, IN 46601

D. saw the war influence not only his business but also his family, friends, and personal life. The exhibit chronicles wartime shortages and embargoes, as well as the extraordinary lengths to which the Olivers answered the call to personal service in support of the war effort.
