Carolina Christmas

Buying Christmas Wreaths in Raleigh, N.C., 1938

As I hinted last week, we in the Information Management Branch have spent the last couple of weeks hard at work moving and updating the popular “A Carolina Christmas” exhibit. “A Carolina Christmas” was originally a physical exhibit in the Search Room and converting it into a web exhibit was one of the first projects I worked on when I became the Archives’ webmaster, a little more than seven years ago.

The new exhibit, renamed “Carolina Christmas,” is now online. Tiffanie and I have expanded the exhibit by adding some previously scanned materials that were not available on the North Carolina State Archives website until now. Currently there are 161 items in the collection and we hope to be able to add to that as we have time and opportunity. I also need to give special thanks to Kim Cumber, our Non-Textual Materials Archivist, for working with Tiffanie to locate relevant additions to the collection.

As you may have noticed, there’s been an increased focus on adding to our digital collections over the last few months. Both the updated Treasures and Presidential Signatures exhibit and “Carolina Christmas” are part of an ongoing project we’ve been working on with the State Library of North Carolina, which will likely be announced publicly in the next few weeks.

But now to the fun stuff – here are some highlights from the revamped Christmas exhibit:
