Thanks to our partner, Chowan University, a new batch with six new scrapbooks are now available on DigitalNC! These scrapbooks showcase Chowan University’s 1950s sports teams, 1980s Data Processing Management Association, early years of the Center for Ethics, and student life during the 1920s and 1930s.
Viola Dana Winslow’s scrapbook provides a look into the lives of students of Chowan College in the 1920s. A majority of the photographs in this scrapbook show Viola and her friends having fun. Underneath the photographs Viola writes descriptive captions about what they are doing as well as the name of her friends and their hometowns. Additionally, she documents some of the sites, views, and buildings around campus and downtown including the science building, her church, the tea room, and the homes of some professors. More photographs from Viola’s scrapbook can be seen below!
