A couple months ago a patron donated a very fragile Martin County World War II scrapbook.  It is a comprehensive collection of newspaper articles related to that crucial period of world history and Martin County’s place in it.  Martin County has very few artifacts that have been digitized by the Digital Heritage Center so I was very  happy  to  take it to Chapel Hill for them to scan, and it is now up on their website.

I also brought a 1965 Gaston County, Ashley High School yearbook that was my father’s.  Gaston County only has three yearbooks digitized and two of them were brought by me!  Pick up the slack Gastonians!

Dad was a lot more outgoing in high school than I was, but I was in high school during the the age of the slacker.
