Game Wardens Weren’t Welcomed

In 1903 the General Assembly  empowered the Audubon Society to enforce the state’s game laws. By 1909 the society’s administration of the laws  — as well as the laws themselves  — had led more than half the counties to opt out. Resistance to hunting and fishing restrictions of any kind remained strong, and it  was 1926 before the legislature established the State Game Commission.

North Carolina Architects & Builders

We’d like to point out a wonderful new resource developed by our colleagues at North Carolina State University: North Carolina Architects & Builders. The site is a biographical dictionary that highlights architects and builders who have produced North Carolina’s architecture over the last 300 years.

Take a look at it—you may notice some of the NC Collection’s postcards used as illustrations, like this one of the Oneida Mills in Graham, NC. Clicking on the image below will link you out to the item’s record in the NC Architects & Builders digital collection, so be sure to check it out.
