10 scrapbooks created by the Ladies’ Auxiliary of the Raleigh Professional Fire Fighters Association Local 548 are now available on DigitalNC. These scrapbooks cover the years 1951-1972 and were provided by our new partner, the Raleigh Fire Museum. The Raleigh Fire Museum houses a collection of artifacts and images representing over 150 years of firefighting in Raleigh, North Carolina.

This group of scrapbooks contains images, correspondence, programs, news clippings, and more documenting both firefighting and social events organized by the Ladies’ Auxiliary. These scrapbooks are organized chronologically and according to type of materials contained within. From the scrapbooks, you get a sense of the social culture surrounding firefighting from the perspective of the spouses and families of firefighters.
