'One Shot: The World War II Photography of John A. Bushemi'


August 9-September 11

The DeMotte Library will host One Shot: The World War II Photography of John A Bushemi, one of the Indiana Historical Society's traveling exhibits, from August 9 - September 11. 

The exhibit features images of American GIs who participated in World War II invasions.  Visitors to the exhibit will be immersed in the Gary, Indiana native's views through numerous magazine covers and personal photographs, including those of soldiers with whom he traveled. 

Bushemi died February 19, 1944, when he and other correspondents became the target for a series of Japanese knee-mortar shells during the invasion of Eniwetok.

The library also carries a book about the collection compiled by Ray E. Boomhower, who has written several books about famous Hoosiers.
