New: Digital Archive of Frank Lloyd Wright Work at Florida Southern College + Link to Another FLW Digital Collection

From an Article:

The Sarah D. and L. Kirk McKay, Jr., Archives Center at Florida Southern College has launched two major digital collections related to the work of architect Frank Lloyd Wright at FSC.

The "Child of the Sun: Florida Southern College Digital Photograph Collection" comprises hundreds of vintage images from the 1930s to the 1950s, including seldom-seen photographs of the campus construction. "The Southern: Florida Southern College's Student Newspaper Collection" represents the beginning of a keyword-searchable database of student newspapers that chronicle the history of the Wright project and other campus events. Both collections are accessible at http://archives.flsouthern.edu/cdm4/about.php

Visiting Metadata/Catalog Librarian Rachel A. Bomberger selected materials, supervised the scanning, and cataloged each element of these archival collections. The project was funded through a grant received from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and is part of the McKay Archives' plan to increase online resources.

FSC's new digital collections "are not only a valuable resource for Florida Southern College students, faculty, and alumni, but for the architectural and scholarly communities as a whole," Bomberger said. "It is our hope that the digitization project will grow to include more historically valuable FSC collections."
