Indiana Political History Map Available from Ball State University Libraries

Indiana Election Day Cartography:  Whigs, Willkie, and the White House

The Ball State University Libraries’ GIS Research and Map Collection (GRMC) features a special “Map of the Month” for November 2014—a map of Indiana political history (above, click to enlarge).  The map, Whigs, Willkie, and the White House, was created by the GRMC and features the people and places of note in Indiana’s rich political history.  Many of the figures and events in Indiana politics also had national prominence and implications.

The map includes photographs from the Libraries’ Digital Media Repository and the Indiana Historical Society.

A copy of the map is available for use in research and learning from the Libraries’ Cardinal Scholar online repository.  The map may be printed for use in the classroom or other educational and research purposes.

The map exhibit is featured in the front windows of the GRMC on the second floor of Bracken Library.
