Here’s another digital resource from our past…
This site was designed and produced in 2006 and 2007 by Jennifer Townes, a research assistant in the North Carolina Collection.
Items selected for digitization were taken from the College Ephemera Collection, which contains ephemeral material from 164 scholarly institutions in North Carolina. For this site, defunct colleges are defined as collegiate institutions which have ceased to function in any academic role. We identified nine institutions which fit this criteria and selected items from those collections for digitization. Only defunct institutions whose ephemera physically resides in the North Carolina Collection are included in this site.
The site is organized alphabetically and information will be added as we receive it. Each section contains a historical sketch of the institution, digitized ephemera, and sources for further research.
