Publicity scrapbook index (Georgia State Women's College/Valdosta State College)
- Coverage Dates: 1912-1949, with gaps
- Update Frequency: Ongoing
The publicity department of Georgia State Womens College (and later Valdosta State College) kept annual publicity scrapbooks. All articles that they found, which included information about the school, its faculty, staff or students, were cut out and mounted in these scrapbooks. Newspapers represented include the large, for example, the Atlanta Constitution, to the very small, the Quitman Free Press. These scrapbooks were kept from 1912 to 1949.
The indexing project lists titles, paper name, names found in articles, subjects, and summaries of all the newspaper articles in each scrapbook. This is a wonderful source for people researching Valdosta State University. Our indexing project is ongoing: we currently have 1912 to 1949 indexed and searchable here. We will add new records at the end of each semester. These records were created by the volunteer VSU history student workers who were working in Archives for their history classes. We are very grateful to these workers. Please contact us if you have any questions.
