Research Trip to Giles County for Trials Expansion
Dr. Susan Knowles of the MTSU Center for Historic Preservation (CHP) and Ken Middleton, Digital Projects Librarian at MTSU, have been canvassing the state for materials to add to this collection, now titled Trials, Triumphs, and Transformations (emphasis added). Recently, they have gone north to Robertson and Montgomery counties, and south through Williamson and Giles Counties. Read all about their adventures, and the rich history they uncovered, on the CHP blog, Southern Rambles.
As Knowles explains, the expanded collection "will show how Tennesseans embraced scientific progress along with newly patented machines and modern methods in agriculture and industry."
