From the Archives

History, documents, and photos

More digital collections

Written By: Phillip Stone - Aug• 04•15

This summer, I’ve spent a good bit of my time adding materials to our Digital Commons@Wofford College site, digitalcommons.wofford.edu, which contains a mixture of faculty and student scholarship, manuscript and archival materials, local history articles, and even several college publications.

Over the past few weeks, we’ve added all of the college’s catalogues, which are available here.  We’ve also added a batch of older alumni bulletins, sort of the predecessor to Wofford Today, and they are available here.  We’ve also got World War II alumni newsletters and the newspaper that the aviation students published while stationed at Wofford during World War II.

The local history collection has a few new items, such as this souvenir program from Charles Lindbergh’s visit to Spartanburg in 1927, or this memoir of the burning of Columbia from 1865.

In the Methodist materials, all of the clergy pictorial directories are now in the repository, including volumes from 1901 to 1975.

There’s more to come, including Interim catalogues, the James C. Dozier papers, and photos of South Carolina Methodist historic sites.  I’m looking forward to sharing more information from the archives so that researchers can use it whether they’re in Spartanburg or Singapore.
