New blog from the Southern Historical Collection at UNC
The Southern Historical Collection (SHC) is excited to announce the launch of "Southern Sources," a new blog maintained by the staff of the SHC:
The SHC hopes to utilize "Southern Sources" as a new way to engage historians, scholars, students, and other members of the general public with the rich archival materials found in the SHC. Through regular posts, "Southern Sources" will show off interesting staff finds, archival curiosities, old favorites, and other samples from our collection.
To date, posts include discussions about battlefront whiskey and turpentine remedies, interesting rules for early 20th-century teachers, a 1948 survey of North Carolina libraries about their African American holdings, and a sailor's description of the damage of the 1847 hurricane that tore through Key West, FL.
We'd love for you to visit "Southern Sources"...read, comment, enjoy, and stay a while!
