A few weeks back, Karen Neal in Hill House contacted Carmichael Library about a rediscovered collection that had suffered water damage. The collection contains biographical information on noted Alabamians and consists mostly of newspaper clippings. The bulk of the articles are from the 1950s and 1960s.
With the help of Dallas Hanbury, archives student worker, and Jamie Rawls, archives intern, we were able to save this collection. After allowing the paper to fully dry, Dallas and Jamie organized the articles and rehoused them in archive appropriate containers. The material has been named the Hill House Collection.
If anyone has any information on this material, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or Karen Neal at email@example.com
