Seoul 1969: Photographs by a Peace Corps Volunteer is a collection of more than 200 images digitized from slide photographs taken by Dr. Margaret Condon Taylor. Dr. Taylor, who received her PhD from the University of Michigan, captured everyday life in a city on the cusp of modernization. These photographs were "discovered" by U-M faculty in 2017 and initially seen in an exhibition at the Institute for the Humanities, for which twenty of the photographs were printed and framed.
