We're excited to announce that we have added a group of over 1700 postcards to the Anna Gove digital collection.
Anna Gove was one of the first licensed woman physicians in North Carolina and was resposnsible for all health-related issues at the college that became UNCG. Gove also worked withe the Red Cross and traveled extensively throughout her life.
These cards mainly document the era before and after World War I but also include some items from as early as the 1890s and as late as the 1930s. Of particular interest are a group of cards depicting the devastation in France following the war.
Anne Gove's papers are being digitized as part of the Good Medicine: Greensboro's Hospitals and Healers digitization project, which is a collaborative effort between the UNCG University Libraries, the Cone Health Medical Library, the Greensboro Historical Museum, and the Greensboro Public Library. The project is funded through the Library Services Technology Act as administered by the State Library of North Carolina. The full project will be online by the summer of 2017.
Thanks to student workers Christian Henderson and Masami Oshita for all their work on this part of the project!
