With special thanks to our partner, High Point Museum, Digital NC is now added to our collections. The latest items include school newspapers from William Penn High School and Griffin Junior High School in High Points, Church Minutes from the Primitive Baptist Association, The Advocate and Messenger newsletter published in Virginia, and a host of items from the Myrtle Desk Company and the Alama Furniture Company.
Most unique in this collection is the 1910 High Point Buggy Company catalog. The catalog features a wide variety of High-Grade Buggies for customers to purchase. In addition to the Buggy catalog, High Point, known for being the Furniture Capital of the World, has produced numerous furniture catalogs, from desks to home furnishings.
The newspapers in this added collection represent William Penn High School and Griffin Junior High School, both local Black high schools in High Point. From newsletters celebrating the 1953 Class Reunion to newspapers discussing the events at the local high school, The Students’ Pen and the Griffin Junior Citizen were staples in the community.
