David Gwynn

Portrait of Dr. James GwynnDavid Gwynn (University Libraries) received a renewal from the State Library of North Carolina for the project “Textiles, Teachers and Troops (Year 2 of 2).” The project will make available some 175,000 digital images including photographs, manuscripts, rare books, scrapbooks, printed materials and oral histories documenting the social and cultural development of Greensboro. For the first time, all five colleges and universities in Greensboro, along with the Greensboro Historical Museum, will be collaborating on a project to make primary source materials available online. By documenting the vitally important influence of the textile industry, public and postsecondary education, and the massive World War II military presence, Textiles, Teachers, and Troops will provide context for understanding the growth of Greensboro from a town of two thousand residents into one of the leading manufacturing and education centers in the Southeast, the abstract states.
