Stanford Libraries is pleased to present The Baltic Way in partnership with the Hoover Institution Archives. Both institutions hold materials related to the history and culture of the Baltic region. The exhibition draws heavily on the Hoover Archives’ significant historical collections, supplemented by the Stanford Libraries’ holdings in support of Baltic studies.
The physical exhibition was co-curated by Liisi Esse, Associate Curator for Estonian and Baltic Studies, and David Jacobs, longtime Hoover Institution Archives project archivist, and produced by Special Collections exhibits designer Becky Fischbach. Katrīna Kalniņa and Natasha Porfirenko assisted with research and item selection.
The exhibit team would like to thank Wayne Vanderkuil for taking photos of the exhibit cases that have been used for this online exhibit. Thanks are also due to Hoover’s digital photographer Fiore Irving for her considerable work scanning posters, photographs, and manuscripts so they could be displayed as digital surrogates in the physical exhibition. Samira Bozorgi, Hoover’s assistant archivist for exhibits, graciously facilitated the process in consultation with Hoover’s conservation team.
