WSSU Archives Gets a Facelift

Over the past couple of months, the University Archives has gone through some substantial changes.  In January movable shelving was installed which doubled the linear feet of storage.  This freed up space on the shelves to make room for two major accessions to the collection.  The first accession was the Fostina Holman Collection.  Holman was a long time music professor at the University and kept a substantial amount of information about the general history of the school.  The second collection was donated by the family of the Rev. Dr. Cedric Rodney.  The religion professor and University Chaplain kept a large collection of slides from his travels as well as records related to the James A. Gray Lecture Series.

Below please enjoy images of the changes made to the Archives.
