1851-2000
(Bulk: 1873-1992)
Extent: 6 linear feet (8 boxes)
Wolrd's fairs and expositions have been held internationally from 1851 and continue into the present.

Most expositions recognized by the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE) are represented, as well as many that are not officially recognized by the BIE. Some non-world's fair events are also represented to a limited extent. While events from around the world are featured in the collection, it primarily centers on expositions that occurred in the United States.
