What’s Inside Your Shoe Box?
Most of us have a shoe box filled with old photos, clippings, and assorted memorabilia from our own lives and families.
You might have something in there that has distinct local importance and would also enhance KHP’s ability to tell a more comprehensive story of this special town. Old family photos might show interesting scenes or buildings. Posters and photos from musical shows here in Knoxville also have fascinating stories to tell, especially when coupled with others.
So, what Knoxville-related treasures are in your shoe box? We are looking for:
Promotional materials such as show poster, flyers, etc.
Our immediate priority is developing our digital collections to enhance our ongoing programs and publishing projects. See an example: The Lib Cooper Knoxville Digital Postcard Collection and new information on Emory Place.
We can take a hi-res scans and in return provide you with digital copies. If you have old items that you would like to donate, we can assist you in selecting an appropriate local collection where they can be preserved and added to public archives.
Please call the KHP office at 865-337-7723 or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Thank you for sharing your history collections with us!
Special thanks to the Aslan Foundation for programmatic support.
