The Knoxville History Project celebrates Knoxville history and honors Steve Cotham for his considerable contributions to what we know about the city’s history at its six annual fundraising luncheon at the Foundry at World’s Fair Park.
For more 35 years, Steve served as manager of the Calvin M. McClung Historical Collection at the Knox County Public Library. He transformed the region’s most valuable research library, greatly expanding the collection’s offerings, introducing a digital catalogue and a tech-trained staff, enhancing its art collection, and incorporating the Tennessee Archive of Moving Image and Sound. He published a photographic book, The Great Smoky Mountains National Park in 2006. He retired in late 2021.
There is no fee to attend but we will encourage everyone to make a donation at the event. Pre-registration is essential before June 24. We cannot accommodate unregistered guests on the day of the event.
Please RSVP to email@example.com and we’ll will connect you with a table host.
