Astrophysics to Zebrafish: 150 Years of Science at Notre Dame

Center for History, Raclin Gallery of Notre Dame History
In 1865, just 23 years after the University of Notre Dame was founded, the school established science as a course of study. Over the last 150 years, the field has grown into a major educational and research enterprise at the school. Today, Notre Dame’s College of Science offers courses in applied mathematics and statistics, biological science, chemistry and biochemistry, mathematics, and physics. Research efforts of the nearly 2,500 faculty and students in Notre Dame’s College of Science achieve significant results. Through such artifacts as early lab equipment, molecule models, and fossils, the exhibit captures all the intrigue and discovery of science, as well as the moments of research that have impacted the country, and indeed, the world.

World War I: The War to End All Wars

Center for History - 808 W. Washington South Bend, IN 46601
It was 100 years ago in 1914 that World War I began with the murder of Archduke Ferdinand. Nation after nation lined up to fight on either the side of the Entente, led by France, or the Central Powers, led by Imperial Germany. These alliances had been building for over 20 years, with each side nursing old wounds and ready for revenge against past insults. All anticipated the battles would be over by Christmas, thinking new and improved technology would provide a definitive edge. Little did they conceive of a war that would last until 1918 and encompass the entire globe. Nor did they anticipate that it would cost the lives of 10 million soldiers, severely impair another 20 million and create 10 million refugees. In the summer of 1914, the war looked like a chance to prove one’s manhood rather than--as it became--a descent into hell.
