With the recent cold snap I thought it might be interesting to find out the lowest recorded temperature in the state. A record low of -34 degrees was recorded on Mount Mitchell on January 21, 1985. This 1938 postcard shows the mountain on what appears to be a more agreeable Spring day, just 72 days away.
Over the next year or so, we are going to point out some of our online resources (guides, indices, etc.) that were created way back when, but maybe you haven’t seen them before or used them in a while. Let us know if you have questions!
2010 is the 20th anniversary of the epic Jesse Helms vs. Harvey Gantt senatorial race in North Carolina, so let’s start with the following:
Index to Helms versus Gantt Newspaper and Magazine Articles
This index is a listing arranged by volume and date of newspaper and magazine articles relating to the 1990 North Carolina Senate race between Jesse Helms and Harvey Gantt.
The call number for bound volumes in the North Carolina Collection is CB H481j2. Xerographic copies of clippings can be purchased; font sizes for these paper copies are small, however, because of significant image reduction.
