The NCC Photo Archives is very pleased to announce the availability of the Edward J. McCauley digital collection, consisting of photos McCauley, a photojournalist and life long resident of Burlington, N.C., took between 1952 and 1972 (mostly for the Burlington Daily Times-News). Most of the images in the digital collection depict political campaigns/elections and other events in and around Alamance County (note that this represents only a small percentage of the nearly 90,000 images found in the Edward J. McCauley Photographic Materials).
I’m sharing this news on A View to Hugh for two reasons. One, because McCauley and Morton were contemporaries (as discussed by my colleague Patrick in a previous post), and often took photos at/of the same events — thus, McCauley’s photos are bound to be of interest to our readers. The second reason is to show an example of the types of “products” we will be creating soon for the Hugh Morton collection (i.e., a finding aid and a searchable digital collection in CONTENTdm, the platform used by UNC Libraries for digital publishing).
Browse away, and enjoy!
