Unexpected Finds Exhibit 4th Floor

Warren Jacket and hat

"An Exhibit of Unexpected Finds in Special Collections" is now installed in the atrium exhibit cases on the 4th floor of Belk Library and Information Commons. Most people may think ofSpecial Collections holdings consisting of books, manuscripts, DVDs, or CDs, but the collections also include a small selection of other, unexpected items. We do not seek most of the items displayed here, but their presence in our collections enriches the historical record that we do collect.

Items on display include Southern Appalachian hand-made baskets discovered by photographer Jack Jeffers, T. Taylor Warren's yellow NASCAR photographer's shirt and hat, a roller organ collected by W. Amos Abrams, and the Boone Community Book created by Jennifer Barron in 2005.

All items are available for research. For more information, contact us at spcoll@appstate.edu or 828-262-7974.
