In conjunction with the United States Bicentennial Celebration in Philadelphia in 1976, Swarthmore College banded together with eleven other local colleges and universities to create the Area Universities' Bicentennial Exhibition, a public display titled "Learning, Revolution, and Democracy." This collection includes both internal Swarthmore documents about the college's contributions to the exhibit, as well as correspondence with other members of the University and College Consortium for the Bicentennial about coordinating plans.
