The University History Collections website includes photos, documents, oral history transcripts, publications, artifacts, and textiles related to the history of UNCG, culled from multiple collections belonging to the Martha Blakeney Hodges Special Collections and University Archives.
There’s some really cool stuff already, including a set of historic postcards, correspondence and other material dating to the first years of the State Normal and Industrial School, and some great material about the recently-demolished 1959 Commencement House. New materials will be added to the site on an ongoing basis, and this is sort of a “soft” launch of the first phase. Comments and thoughts are most welcome.
The site also links to the University Yearbooks Collection that went live several weeks ago and within a few months will also link to the upcoming Carolinian, Corradi and State Normal Magazine, and Alumni Magazine projects.
