1950s photo of man and woman atop race car

Harold Mauck lived life in the fast lane. His documentation of Nebraska's post-WWII stock car racing culture is featured heavily in the upcoming Nebraska History Museum exhibit Start Your Engines.

Exhibits Curator Tina Koeppe and Exhibits Artist Jennifer Graham work on the display for Ruth Diamond Levinson's jacket. Levinson wore this jacket (nicknamed “GI Josephine”) during her service in World War II. The artifact is part of the "Nebraska Unwrapped" exhibit on display now at the Nebraska History Museum.


Today we’re highlighting one of the new exhibits at the newly-renovated Nebraska History Museum.

Barbara and Ralph Fox, 1943. Ralph C. and Barbara Rehberg Fox Collection (NSHS RG4701-2-116)
