On August 15, 1914, the Panama Canal opened for business after decades of construction by French and American engineers.
Inspired by the centennial, the story of the events leading up to the grand opening of the canal is retold in the Linda Hall Library's exhibition, The Land Divided, The World United: Building the Panama Canal. Visitors to the exhibition can explore the dynamic period of canal building in the early 20th century through the eyes of Office Engineer A. B. Nichols who lived and worked in the Canal Zone from 1904 until the Panama Canal opened in 1914. The exhibition includes artifacts from the Library's Nichols Collection, a scale model of the Canal Zone, a model of a working canal lock, and rare books from the Library's History of Science collection.
The exhibition is accompanied by a free public lecture series, exhibition tours, and an educational website.
