I’ve just read on a listserv I belong to that the Calvin M. McClung Historical Collection of the Knox County Public Library has a Digital Collections website at http://cdm265301.cdmhost.com/.
Blount County is bordered by Knox County, so you may find items of interest here! The Digital Collection currently focuses on three sets of material:
- Thompson Photograph Collection – pictures that span 1907-1960 from local photography Jim Thompson.
- Knox County Two Centuries – pictures submitted in 1991 from county residents in celebration of the county’s 200th birthday
- Women’s Suffrage – pictures from the women’s suffrage movement
Features on the site allow you to set up your personal “favorites” and set preferences for search results, slideshows and more.
The pictures currently here are just the beginning. Check it out!
