WU Special Collections Tapped

January 29th, 2010 by Alison Simpson in Announcements, Archives, Special Collections

The Traveling Archivist Program (TAP) is a pilot project developed by the North Carolina State Historic Records Advisory Board and the North Carolina State  Archives.  The goal of the program is to offer direct  assistance to institutions that preserve North Carolina’s historical heritage.  TAP provides archival care instructions to institutions with collections potentially at risk (rare, delicate holdings, etc.).

In late November 2009 the EKS Library received confirmation from Mr. Jeffrey Crow (Deputy  Secretary, Office of  Archives and History) that the Wingate University Archives has been selected for the program.  Forty institutions from around the state will be served throughout a series of two 8-month cycles beginning this Spring.

There will be a ceremony of recongition for the gift of a rare Vinegar Bible by the Vick family on Sunday, May 1 from 2:00 until 4:00 p.m. This Bible is so-called because of its numerous printing errors, the most egregous is the heading The Parable of the Vinegar for The Parable of the Vineyard. The Library will be closed during this time.


The Debra O’Neal Collection

October 16th, 2002 by jimm wetherbee in Special Collections

One of the most beloved Wingate professors of  recent years was the late Dr. Debra O’Neal of the History Department. Her untimely death affected everyone who knew her even though she lives on in the minds and lives of the students she taught and the colleagues she worked with.

A voracious reader and intrepid researcher, Debra’s collection spans not only her beloved American History, but areas such as World History, Women’s Studies, Irish and American literature, and recent fiction. Also included were music CDs and records, History videos, and recent films. All told, there were nearly 2,500 titles. This donation has been a great addition to the Library’s collection. We have been able to replace some titles we already owned with copies in better shape and have been able to fill some holes and build up areas that previously were weak. While not kept separately, each volume added to the Library’s collection has a bookplate stating that it is a part of the Debra O’Neal Collection (you can search in the online catalog using her name to find these items) . We at the Library still miss Debra, a frequent patron who never failed to brighten our days with her visits, even when she was feeling less than her best. Thanks to Dean’s kind donation, her legacy to Wingate lives on in a lasting way which reflects her wide interests, her deep scholarship, and her love of this institution.
