10 More High Point Scrapbooks Added to DigitalNC

From page 29 of High Point Scrapbook [1959]

From page 304 of High Point Scrapbook Vol. 52

10 more scrapbooks documenting news in and around High Point, North Carolina are now up on DigitalNC, courtesy of our partner, the Heritage Research Center at High Point Public Library. Materials in these scrapbooks range in date from 1957-1972 are comprised primarily of clippings from newspapers published in the Piedmont Triad. Papers represented include the High Point Enterprise, the Greensboro Daily News, and the Winston-Salem Journal. Five of the scrapbooks are from a volume set and join previously digitized volumes dating back to 1951. Many clippings from this set of scrapbooks deal with municipal and civic issues, and each scrapbook includes a handwritten index in the front.

The other five scrapbooks cover periods of time that overlap with the volume set. They are physically large scrapbooks, and occasionally include an entire page from a newspaper. Newspaper pages and clippings cover a wide array local and regional news.
