Carolina College

Finding Aid for the Collection


Please note: This is a slightly obsolete version of the finding aid for the collection. The most up-to-date version is in XML. If you cannot access that version, and have questions that aren't answered by this page, please contact us.

 

The materials in the Carolina College Collection were accumulated by students and alumnae of Carolina College. The collection measures approximately five linear feet, the bulk of which consists of documents, photographs, and scrapbooks. The first part of the collection (Series 1) consists of materials generated during the lifetime of Carolina College, including photographs, publications, and insignia pins. The second part of the collection (Series 2) consists of materials generated by the Carolina College Alumnae Association (CCAA).

At its inception, the CCAA affiliated itself with Presbyterian Junior College. When the campus was sold to Carolina Military Academy, the Association members continued to meet on the site of their old alma mater. When Carolina Military Academy closed, the Association began meeting at Methodist College in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

When the CCAA met on the Methodist College campus, materials were periodically given to Dr. Bill Lowdermilk, the Methodist College liaison to the CCAA, for safekeeping. Over the years, the materials grew to their current size and scope. In 2001, when some steps from the old Carolina College campus were dedicated on the Methodist College campus, Taylor McMillan, the son of long-time CCAA president Rhoda Holden McMillan, donated a scrapbook of Carolina College materials and a copy of the Carolina College history Carolina Echoes which had annotations and corrections penned in by his mother. Few details are available concerning the provenance of the remainder of the collection.

Within the limitations of fair use, there are no restrictions on access to or reproduction of materials in the collection.
